Kimberly “Kim” Falk, BSBA, is the Program Manager for MMI’s Family Care Enhancement Project (FCEP), who supervises Parent Resource Coordinators (PRCs) in medical clinics across the state.
Kim has worked at Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) for over 10 years. She started as a Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental and Related Disabilities (LEND) Trainee and took her personal experience as a parent of a child with a disability to help support other families with additional opportunity and programs at MMI.
Kim previously served as the Respite Employer Engagement Coordinator through a contract with the Nebraska Lifespan Respite Network. She developed the Respite Employer Engagement Initiative through a Pilot Project from 2015 – 2017. A replicable model of employer recruitment as been used to share Respite Resources with employers since 2017. She also partnered with the Center of Children, Families and the Law and the University of Wisconsin in Madison to develop Nebraska’s Working Caregiver Survey. This is an anonymous survey that employers can use to better support working caregivers on their teams. It is more important than ever to keep valuable employees on your staff.
Kim has been invited or selected to present Respite Employer Engagement Initiative and Working Caregiver Survey presentations multiple times at national conferences. She hopes to continue supporting working caregivers and families across the state with the help of the FCEP Team.
