Kim Johanek graduated from Boise State University with a B.A. in Sociology and a Master’s of Public Administration. She is currently completing her PhD in Education Leadership with an emphasis in Leadership, Policy, and Change. Her research focus is on first-year persistence and retention of students in community colleges. Kim is very proud of the fact that she has been teaching with CWI since it first opened its doors in 2007 and is currently serving as the Lead Faculty for the Connecting With Ideas (CWID) program.
Prior to working full time for CWI, she was a member of the United States Army as a Medical Service Corps Officer and had the great opportunity to live in and travel throughout the United States and the world to include Uzbekistan, Africa, all of Europe, and the Middle East. She retired from the Army as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2012.
When not at CWI, Kim is busy with her six children, two with two legs and four with four. When not working or studying she can usually be found in McCall waterskiing, wakeboarding, snow-skiing, or just relaxing with her family and friends.
