Kim Hanley is the Marketing Manager, Corporate Healthcare Manager and Women of Wellness (WOW) Program Coordinator at St. Joseph Medical Center. Her early years were spent in Oregon, Ohio which is a suburb of Toledo. She did her undergraduate work at Youngstown State University and graduate work at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP). The results were a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Advertising and Public Relations plus a Masters of Education, M.ED, Business, Computer, and Information Technology.

Her first job was as a business instructor at the Academy of Culinary Arts at Indiana University Pennsylvania where she taught business hospitality and accounting. While there, she found time to do recruiting and serve as assistant coach of the IUP men and women’s swim teams. In the summers from 2005-2011 she had coached the UT Longhorn Swim Team in Austin and soon found that the annual journeys from Ohio to Texas were tedious. Making the permanent move and seeking a job in Texas resulted in her working at the Tomball Regional Medical Center.

Kim joined the Chamber “to take advantage of networking opportunities, create business connections and serve the Heights community.” Service must be her middle name because she participates and serves in many local organizations. Active in Leadership North Houston class of XIX, she was awarded “Most Enthusiastic” classmate. In addition she served on the Community Service Project Committee and the Class XIX Program of Choice Committee.

With even more emphasis on service, Kim points out that she is a radKIDS Certified Instructor. It is a child empowerment program that stands for r-resisting, a-aggression, and d-defensively for children aged 5 – 12 years. Busy woman, yes, but Kim still finds time for networking, workouts, movies, traveling, of course swimming, dancing and reading. Vacations are spent visiting with her family in Ohio or Arizona, or jet-setting to meet them usually in sunny and tropical locations.

Oh yes, we would be remiss if we did not reveal the words she lives by, “Love Life and Just be Cool.” You are definitely cool, Kim, and we salute your enthusiasm for life and the Chamber.
