Kim Perry

Founder, Board Chair and President

Kim has always been driven to show others that life is an opportunity not to be missed. She grew up in foster care before moving out on her own at the age of 17. Contributing to the community is just as important as having a successful career. Throughout the years, Kim has volunteered with the following programs:

  • Crises Nursery / Cook for Kids - As team leader for eight years she coordinated volunteers and meals monthly.
  • Big Sister - Mentoring a young lady from the age of eight until she turned sixteen.
  • YMCA - Joined the committee in collecting donations for the Purses With Purpose Annual Luncheon.
  • Beyond Ballroom - Board of Directors.
  • Hennepin County - For several years she assisted an elderly man with his finances.
  • Various non-profit events - Collected and organized silent auction items.

Without a support system or mentoring program available life is not easy as a young woman. This is one of the reasons Kim was so passionate about starting Diverse Daisies. She knew that many young women would flourish in a program that believes in their inner strength thereby inspiring them to make better choices in life, set goals and DREAM BIG!
