As a parent of a LAUSD student, Kim has always been deeply committed to making a difference in the lives of children in our community. She is active at a school volunteer level, but even more directly in her multiple impactful roles within the LAUSD over the years. Kim is the current Vice Chair of LAUSD’s Personnel Commission, and has been part of the Commission since 2014. As an active volunteer at the school level, Kim served on Hopkinson’s PTA Board from 2017 – 2019 as both corresponding and co-corresponding secretary, as well serving on several school-wide PTA committees. For her volunteer efforts over the years, the Hopkinson PTA honored Kim in 2019 with its Very Special Person Award. In addition, Kim was a founding Board Member and Secretary of The Friends of the CDC group that raised significant funding to enhance the LAUSD’s District-wide preschool program.
Kim proudly served as Secretary and Board Member of LAEF from 2014-2019, initiating necessary amendments to portions of the LAEF bylaws, participating in every District-Wide STEAM showcase, and volunteering on various committees over the years. She is passionately committed to enriching the lives of students throughout our District and is an outspoken advocate for LAEF’s after-school and SEI programs.
When she is not volunteering for the District, Kim is a litigation paralegal for the global law firm of Seyfarth Shaw LLP, where she has worked for the past 16 years, assisting various teams of attorneys with incredibly complex legal cases and presenting these cases at trial. This experience allows her to look at situations from a process-oriented, fact-based perspective. Kim’s skills in her career have been called upon by numerous Boards and groups within the District, and she is always more than happy to offer her insights.
Kim was raised in Rossmoor and is a proud Alumni of Rossmoor Elementary, Oak Middle School and Los Alamitos High School, and is incredibly committed to maintaining a legacy of Griffin Pride. Her father, Ted Horn, served the LAUSD as a Personnel Commissioner for 29 years, until his death in 2009.
Kim is incredibly active in our community, volunteering wherever she is needed. She strongly believes that our community’s children are our future, and she is committed to creating the pathways and systems to enable that to happen, well into the next decade.
Kim and her husband Stephen have one son Zachary, a proud Oak Lion!
