Kim Sykes-Joseph, Library HR Director

Library HR Director, Human Resources Leader, Kim Sykes-Joseph plays favorites with books – in fact, she has three! The Wedding by Dorothy West, Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston and Reaching Back by Nea Anna Simone are all titles she holds close to heart.

A self-described “bridge builder,” Kim is most passionate about being the support structure people need, so they can cross over and find a clearer path, personally and professionally.

When she isn’t managing all things human resources, Kim can be found reading, journaling, cooking, spending time with family and friends, and striving for peace.

“It doesn’t mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work,” she says.  “It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”
