Kim Wells

Kim is Senior Director, Human Resources, at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle. In this capacity, she oversees the recruitment, employment, diversity, and internal consulting services for the 4000-person organization, which includes both research at Fred Hutch and patient services at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Her career has focused primarily on organization development, in helping departments, managers, and large institutions improve operational efficiencies, team effectiveness, and leadership acumen. 

Before landing at Fred Hutch, Kim worked for and consulted with many healthcare institutions around the Pacific Northwest, including organizations such as Boeing and KOMO Broadcasting. Her undergraduate and graduate degrees both come from the University of Washington. Her master's work and continued research is in the area of organizational systems.

A Northwest native, Kim spends spring and summer hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, where she enjoys spotting the birds of the Pacific Flyway.
