Kimberly Fielding has undergraduate and graduate degrees in social work (from the Metropolitan State University of Denver and Denver University. respectively) and a doctorate degree in education from Fielding Graduate University. “Learning equals change” defines Kimberly’s philosophy and skill set.
Kimberly’s previous professional experiences include designing, developing, implementing and evaluating a college-wide mentoring program and helping a social work program obtain CSWE accreditation for its distance-learning efforts. In the private sector, Kimberly developed a faith-based community outreach program to provide mental health, therapeutic and community services. After a tornado in Joplin, Missouri, Kimberly joined the community behavioral health center to implement a four-year SAMSHA National Child Traumatic Stress Network grant. Kimberly has served as a trauma-informed consultant in the education, medical, child advocacy, mental health, prevention and residential treatment sectors.
At Shelterwood, Kimberly will provide direct therapeutic services, lead trauma-informed structure and practices, train mentors, facilitate change and affirm the important work already underway at the center.
Kimberly enjoys a good challenge, like gardening, learning to solve the Rubik’s cube, fishing, and travelling to all 50 states—Alaska is the last state on her list!
