Staff Member Spotlight – February
Kimberly Diedrich is a valued staff member here at the Humane Society of Sheboygan County. She joined us as Volunteer Coordinator about eight months ago.
Prior to joining our team full time as an employee, Kim volunteered with us in various areas such as at the Grafton PetSmart, kennel cleaning, and cat cage cleaning. She knew how much she was helping animals in her short amount of time volunteering, and couldn’t even imagine the difference she could make working as a full-time employee here. She says it was the BEST decision she’s ever made!
There are a number of reasons why Kim loves her role here at the Humane Society of Sheboygan County. As Volunteer Coordinator, she has the opportunity to interact with volunteers, staff, board members, animals, and organizations within our community. She enjoys recruiting volunteers to make a difference in the lives of animals in our shelter.
When Kim isn’t at the shelter or her other job at the nursing home, she can be found with her parents, boyfriend, and her two cats, 9-year old Lilly and 2.5 year old Oscar. She loves to catch up on TV shows like the Good Doctor and the Resident while snuggling her cats during the Wisconsin winters. During the warmer months, she’s adventuring around the state, whether it’s checking out new state parks, visiting farmer markets, or attending local events.
When asked for interesting facts about herself, Kim answers that she’s really not interesting. However, we beg to differ! A woman of many talents, she has a degree in human resources, correctional certificate, and is a registered CNA for the state of Wisconsin.
Kim looks forward to the future of the Humane Society of Sheboygan County. Five years from now, she envisions us in our new beautiful building, helping even more animals than we do today. She’s also excited that we’ll be able to offer more educational opportunities to local programs like 4H groups, scouts, and summer camps. Her biggest hope for the Humane Society of Sheboygan County is that we’ll be able to continue to educate and help everyone in Sheboygan County – both young and old.
Thank you Kim for the dedication and hard work that you bring every single day! We are so lucky to have you!
