Kim is recognized for creating a streamlined, effective SEAS research award documentation process.  By working collaboratively with the external vendor and internal stakeholders, she designed a solution that meets UVA 's and her colleagues' needs. Because of her awareness of the inherent challenges of moving from paper to an electronic platform, she wisely invested in extensive testing to ensure a smooth implementation and engaged her colleagues to promote adoption. Upon successful implementation, she is now seen as the content expert and the "go to" person for questions and support. This improvement directly supports the research mission of UVA.
