Portrait of Kim


Kim worked for the Lancaster, California, USA, branch of CareNet Women’s Resource Center where she performed the duties of executive director. Her background was in social work; she earned her Masters in Social Work (MSW) at California State San Bernardino and her undergraduate degree at California State San Marcos.

Kim arrived in Antelope Valley a year prior to this interview. At first, she worked as a volunteer at CareNet, and then “the director of the center left, and it was a good fit for me to become the director.”

Kim practiced various forms of case management such as adoptions and Adult Day Health Care Center advising.

Kim was originally from Southern California but lived in Kansas for about seven years. Her husband had coached at a small Christian College there. When she lived in Kansas, Kim was the director of a transitional housing program for women and children.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?
