Kim Kissel’s 17 years of experience in transportation will be greatly appreciated at the Lakeland Chapter as she settles in to her new position as Transportation Office Coordinator. Before working at the Red Cross, Kim worked for Excel Express, Inc., as a member of the trucking company’s operations department.
Kim was raised near Casco, WI and graduated from Luxemburg-Casco High School. After college graduation she was married and has lived in Green Bay. As a Northeast Wisconsin native she is familiar with the local efforts of the Red Cross. “I have always felt that the Red Cross is a wonderful organization. I’m very impressed with all of the services that they provide for the community,” says Kim.
As Transportation Office Coordinator, Kim has the opportunity to get to know the volunteers and staff at the Red Cross; she says she has really enjoyed all of the friendly people.
The Lakeland Chapter provides a unique service to its community with its transportation services, which is only possible because of volunteer drivers. The transportation services are provided to those 60 and over and to individuals with disabilities allowing them to lead a fulfilling self-sufficient lifestyle.
When Kim is not at the Red Cross she might be found at her part-time job at the library. If you don’t find her there she is probably with her family. “I am most proud of my loving family and all of the support they give me.”
