I love technology, and have shared my love, serving as an adjunct faculty member for Milwaukee Area Technical College, Moraine Park Technical College, and Fox Valley Technical College as a software instructor. I also served as a corporate trainer for New Horizons and the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin.
I began my work in communications as the owner of Perimeter Computer Services, a software training company serving Fortune 500 companies in the Appleton/Green Bay area. I wrote the training manuals, served as the primary instructor, managed the business, and received the Rising Star Award for my entrepreneurial efforts.
I have served three Wisconsin chambers of commerce as the Executive Director – the Tomahawk Chamber, the West Bend Chamber, and the Rhinelander Chamber. I graduated from the Institute for Organization Management’s four year program, receiving my IOM designation.
I have successfully created and implemented several communications strategies, including:
- The City of Sheboygan Tourism’s branding and marketing campaign,
- the School District of Rhinelander’s $12 million referendum educational campaign, and
- the formation and management of the Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indian’s Tribal Communications Office.
Kim Swisher Communications, LLC., has the proven ability to simplify complex information. We excel at nurturing and maintaining engagement.
In serving several Wisconsin Tribal sovereign nations, I have garnered state and national media attention by crafting stories that share traditional cultural practices and promote a positive image of Native Americans. While serving the School District of Rhinelander, I gained an understanding of school property tax funding and created an educational campaign in six months that successfully passed a $12 million referendum. While serving the City of Sheboygan, I developed a brand and implemented a tourism marketing plan that consistently increased room tax revenues.
In June 2015, I completed the UW-Madison Division of Continuing Studies Servant Leadership program.
