Rocking it since: 2020
Kim’s first experience working for Artina was actually in the early 1990’s! At that time, it was called Olympic. Kim happened to be neighbors with the Bouzounis family and a close friend of their daughter Matina. Every so often, Mr. Chris Bouzounis would need some extra hands fulfilling various projects. Who better to help-out than a few money seeking teenagers? What Kim never thought, was that 30 years later, she would be an official Artina employee responsible for what you ask, fulfillments!
Rewind back to the 90’s, after graduation from Westerville South High School, Kim went on to graduate from The University of Dayton with a Bachelor of Science in Education. She taught 2nd grade at High Point Elementary in Gahanna, Ohio. In 2002, her first child was born. She then became a fulltime caretaker of 1 instead of 25 2nd graders. Two years later, her second child was born and Kim remained a fulltime mom of her son and daughter in addition to a part-time Merchandising Field Rep and Trainer.
Come Spring of 2019, after lunch with long-time friend and now President of Artina, Kim was approached about the possibility of coming on board the Artina team as the Shipping Coordinator. A new position they were just introducing. With Kim’s 2 children now in High School she was ready for a change and began working with Artina April of 2019.
Although this is Kim’s first office job, she brings a strong work ethic, an eye for detail and a capability and willingness to learn. She is very thankful and honored to be a part of The Artina Team!
