Prior to this position, she served as Resource Manager for the Center for Accelerator Mass Spectrometry and a Senior Financial Analyst for the Materials Science Division, both at LLNL. Kim’s passion for science, love of spreadsheets, and commitment to the highest level of customer support have resulted in a win-win for her position here at the Center.
