Kim Davis joined Monterey AMBUCS in 2013, after having been a program presenter at one of our regular Monday luncheons in her capacity as Community Relations Manager at Mosaic. She says, “I thought it was a fun and active group. I loved what Monterey AMBUCS was doing in the community.”
Since joining, she has been a huge asset. She just completed her year as the Board Secretary, is now serving as President-Elect for next year, and was recently named by immediate past president, Don Lynn at our recent Installation Banquet as AMBUC of the Year for 2015-2016!
As noted, Kim works at Mosaic, a local non-profit organization that operates group homes and provides day services for people with Intellectual Disabilities. Her duties as Community Relations Manager include fundraising, event planning and networking within the community.
She says the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce Ambassador program has provided a great opportunity for her to do this, and it was with Kim’s encouragement that our Club recently joined the Chamber.
On a personal note, Kim says, “I am a huge Elvis Presley fan – having visited Graceland in December 2014, and I have always loved Barry Manilow.” She also added. “I have webbed toes (family trait),” which may have been too much information.
She loves books – “not so much the actual reading but I love listening to audiobooks.” She also loves movies and tries every year to see all of the Oscar nominated pictures. Her all-time favorite movies are Top Gun, Footloose, Tombstone and The Wizard of Oz.
Kim has been married to her husband, Waylon, for 27 years. They have raised 4 boys. Hunter is 24 and works at Cardinal’s doing graphic design. Garrett is 20 and currently serving in the U.S. Army, stationed in Afghanistan.
Nolan, who is also 20 (Garrett’s twin), played soccer one year at the University of the Southwest in Hobbs, NM (“yes I am a long-time soccer mom”), and he is now attending South Plains. Their fourth, Alonzo, is 19 and came to live with them in order to complete his senior year in high school. He also serves in the U.S. Army and is stationed with Garrett in Afghanistan
Kim is obviously a very active individual, and says her goals are to travel and eventually retire, and our goal as a Club is to figure out how to clone her as quickly as possible!
If you, like Kim, want to be a part of a fun and active group, Join Us some Monday for lunch at the McKenzie/Merket Alumni Center and see what inspired this already active lady to become even more active.
