She is an avid reader and spends her free time with her two dogs and her cat. Thanks for all you do for KIAC, Graciela!
Kimberly Cizek Allen has joined the KIAC team in the role of Development & Marketing Director. Kim has lived in Kitsap since the age of 2 with a brief hiatus to attend Linfield College in Oregon. Although Kim has spent a good part of her professional life working as a Registered Nurse, non-profit fundraising, marketing and event planning is her passion. She worked with Kitsap Humane Society in a variety of fundraising roles and supported other Kitsap non-profits with fundraising, event planning and marketing support. When not working, Kim loves getting lost in the forest, snorkeling the waters of the Salish Sea, snuggling and caring for animals, and reading a never-ending stack of books.
