Alumni Spotlight

Kim Gardner

Kim Gardner MSW '95, LCSW, LAC, recently received GSSW's Community Service Award, in recognition of her significant and continuous volunteer involvement in major community activities, above and beyond her employed position.

Gardner has focused her professional career on advocacy and services for children and families. As lead clinical supervisor at the Intermountain Community Mental Health Center in Helena, Montana, Gardner plans and implements innovative and effective therapeutic school-based programs. Additionally, she serves as board secretary of the Montana Chapter of National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and previously served chaired its Ethics Committee. As the current chair of the organization's Clinical Supervision Task Force, Gardner has taken a leadership role in conducting the first three 20-hour clinical supervisor training courses, enabling the first 120 Clinical Supervisors to meet the state's "Qualified Supervisors" criteria. In May of 2013, Montana Governor Steve Bullock appointed Gardner to serve on the state's Board of Social Work Examiners and Professional Counselors through December of 2016.

Gardner was nominated for her award by NASW Montana's director, John Wilkinson (MSW '76). His nomination reads, in part, "I know our profession and association have and continue to greatly benefit from Kim's tireless, effective and largely unrecognized dedication, commitment and service to Montana's social workers."
