Human Capital Strategy Department of Commerce/NOAA

Most Significant Accomplishment:

I am a two-time recipient of the Secretary’s Honor Award with the USDA. This award is the highest honor given within a governmental department to provide high-level recognition to employees who have made outstanding contributions to the agency.

Professionally, I am known to bring an in-depth understanding of human resources/human capital subject matter to the organization to anticipate. respond. and resolve customer needs. I
enhance customer satisfaction through mission centered. consultative services that are enabled through an in-depth understanding of the organization’s workforce challenges

Personal Motto or words to live by:

One of my motto’s is that “we make a living by what we get–we make a life by what we give” and I give much more than what I get. Holding on to a lifelong love for children, and knowing that one person can make a difference, I established a non-profit community organization that focused on serving the needs of disadvantaged youth and women in Anne Arundel County and surrounding areas. The best reward comes from helping others realize that they can make a difference for someone. Believing that education is one of life’s most important goals, I established the KIMARKI Educational Scholarship. The scholarship was named after my two sons, Keoni (Kiki) and Markus, both of whom I instilled the value of education in hopes that they wIll also give back one day to someone less fortunate than them. I am proud to say that I personally single handedly raised over $50,000 to fund college scholarships for local high school students.
