Kim Brown, MSW, RSW, started her human services career in 1982 as a volunteer at a vocational program for adults with developmental disabilities. She went on to work in group homes for individuals with developmental disabilities and/or mental illnesses, a nursing home for the elderly and people with severe physical disabilities, and a psychiatric hospital for children. She accepted employment with the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services and spent the next 11 years as a public assistance caseworker, county assistance office supervisor, State public assistance policy supervisor and welfare reform project coordinator. In 2001, Kim was hired as a children's mental health case manager, behavioral consultant and community-based psychiatric rehabilitation aide for the Bitterroot Valley. Part-time Linkages responsibilities were added to her position description in the fall of 2002.

To continue her journey of lifelong learning, Kim joined the University of Montana Rural Institute as a Transitions Project Coordinator in July 2003. She worked as part of the Transition team for the WISER, Linkages, Graduate to Work, Partnerships for Transition and MT-TIRC projects, providing technical assistance, training and on-site support to schools, agencies, families and students. She currently serves as Project Coordinator for the Rural Institute Transition and Employment Projects.
