Kim Rhodes joined the team as a GIS and Resilience Analyst in February 2021 and has over 5 years experience working in resilience and GIS analysis. Kim leverages her expertise to uncover valuable insights to communities. Her approach is built on years of experience in creating models to evaluate coastal resilience for both human communities and fish and wildlife populations throughout the country.
Kim earned a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Management and Policy from the University of North Carolina Asheville and a GIS Fundamentals Certificate from Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College. As a student at UNCA, Kim focused her undergraduate research on growth, land use change, and open space loss in Western North Carolina. During her research, she explored potential drivers of these changes and policy solutions.
She now calls Salt Lake City home and in her spare time can be found somewhere between the mountains and desert of northern and southern Utah. She is an active member of the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance where she lends her GIS skills to better assess and inventory climbing areas and trails along the Wasatch Front.
