"I have a strong desire to serve others, and I measure success by when someone expresses gratitude or I see positive outcomes and changes in my patients."
In her 20th year of nursing, helping people is Nurse Kim Prior’s top priority.
“I have a strong desire to serve others, and I measure success by when someone expresses gratitude or I see positive outcomes and changes in my patients.”
Serving her fifth year working for the Union County Health Department, Kim received her Associate of Nursing degree from Lorain County Community College and received her school nursing license from Wright State University.
Before coming to UCHD, she was a primary care nurse.
Kim is always out and about in Union County. She can be found doing health screenings in schools or meeting families through the BCMH program, which helps parents in need with the financial burden of their child’s medical bills.
“Relieving financial strain and stress for families with kids that have chronic medical conditions, and who are struggling to pay medical bills and locate resources is the reward of my effort,” she said.
Before receiving degrees related to nursing, she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from Bowling Green State University. She enjoys spending time with her husband Andy, her new English Springer Spaniel puppy Rainee Daze, and family and friends.
She also enjoys cooking, reading, camping, fishing, hiking, and kayaking. You can find her at garage and barn sales or at antique stores in search of unique finds.
