Hello all! My name is Kim Hazard and I’m excited to be stepping into the coordinator role for C4AGES. Below is a bit about myself. I look forward to working with folks to make change in our community.
Kim Hazard went to UC Berkeley, where she completed a B.S. in Society and Environment in 2013. After graduating, she served as a Climate Corps Bay Area fellow working for Alameda County as their Greening Preschools Coordinator, educating preschoolers and staff on recycling and waste. She helped secure grant funding to stay on with the County and grow the green childcare program to promote environmental health and sustainability.
Kim also worked with the UCSF School of Nursing, California Childcare Health Program on several projects. She is currently coordinating a 5-year study, funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, quantifying levels of harmful pesticides in California childcare centers and seeing if an integrated pest management intervention can help reduce children’s exposures.
Kim moved to Richmond/El Sobrante in 2012 and got involved with the C4AGES soon after. She’s led the Drive 25 campaign, runs the group’s social media, and developed the new website.
She just finished her first year in the Environmental Health Sciences graduate program at UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health. She was also appointed to the County’s Sustainability Commission last year, which advises the Board of Supervisors on implementation of the County’s Climate Action Plan.
