Kim Valente spent over twenty years in the finance industry in various capacities, but helping start-ups and small businesses grow and expand was most rewarding to her. Using her business, non-profit board and volunteer experiences, Kim transitioned to a non-profit career in 2010 where she developed and managed programs related to entrepreneurship and self-employment.  She joined StrongMinds in early 2015 and feels very passionate about its mission.  Kim has an MBA from the University of Connecticut and a BS in finance from Providence College. She’s an avid runner and yogi which helps her keep pace with her three sporty kids.
