Biography| Alley Cat Allies

KimKean--webEver since Kim learned that most cats don’t make it out of shelters alive, she was determined to become one of their staunchest advocates. That’s what led her to become the Trapping Coordinator of Alley Cat Allies’ Atlantic City Boardwalk Cats Project in 2000, helping the city-supported TNR Boardwalk Cat Project achieve its goals.

More than a decade later, as Atlantic City Program Manager, Kim guides 2 staff in New Jersey and dozens of volunteers in maintaining the beautiful cats in colonies living along the Atlantic City Boardwalk and making sure the cats remain healthy, and worthy of their tourist attraction status. Under Kim’s leadership, our TNR programs are a model of best practices around the country. Kim knows every cat and works on their behalf no matter what the weather, storm or heat wave, or holiday.

When she’s not spending time with her gang of kitties, her Chihuahua, Nina, and her husband, she’s heading out to sea on her paddleboard.
