We are periodically spotlighting employees who volunteer their time and talents to help our community. Kim Nelson is a Clinical Informatics Analyst and has been with LVMC for more than 11 years.

Where do you volunteer?

Lompoc Little League, Lompoc High School Baseball and Football. I have been on the Babe Ruth Baseball board and the Lompoc Youth Football Board. I was a Team Mom for many years for my boys in soccer, baseball, football and basketball.

How long have you volunteered? 

I have volunteered in one way or another since 1988 in youth sports.

Why do you volunteer?

I love kids. I truly believe if you want to know your community and be a part of a great community, you need to get involved. I want the organizations to continue to do well for the future of our children. 

I have met so many wonderful parents and children through volunteering. I have been so fortunate to have many of those parents become close friends. I am truly blessed.
