About Kim Coffee-Isaak
Kim is an accomplished retired nonprofit executive professional with proven track record of success in planning and implementing events, projects and programs. She is adept at team building and has excellent communication, problem solving and collaboration skills. She is a skilled, creative and systems thinker, a community capacity builder and a dedicated passionate individual. As well, she is an artist and maintains an active art glass studio.
A note from Kim– My business objective is to contribute to the development of stronger, healthier and sustainable communities in the state of Hawai‘i using the powerful tools of perseverance, creative vision and collaboration and to utilize my management, programming and community building skills in a flexible and creative environment. I would like to create a balance between consulting and working in my studio; art glass is a passion and I am growing it’s presence in my work routines.
Why Green Dog Projects? I want you to remember my business name and market research has shown a color and an animal are memorable. Dogs and my relationship to them have been a consistent and positive part of my life and I appreciate what they teach and represent – connection, positivity and unbound energy/possibility. I want those values and characteristics to define my company. Green? because of my surroundings; I live in a lush green rainforest on a verdant tropical island. And I have a great desire to live and work “green” and will always strive to make this company sustainable -financially, environmentally and with my business relationships. Projects is a broad word and allows me to pick and chose how I will spend my work days – sometimes working with clients and events, sometimes in my studio making cool stuff and sometimes tapping away on my laptop in my quiet home with my dog slumbering by my side.
