Kim Lane, Ph.D

I have been a clinical social work over 25 years. My master’s degree led me to mental health and substance abuse clinical work. I quickly tossed me on the growth ladder. Nine years ago, I completed doctorate in Human Services with an emphasis on leadership. I was committed to being the a good leader so I wanted to gain as much knowledge as possible. I found myself interested in the baby boomer generation (yes, I am one). As a dissertation, I studied aging nurses wanting to know what might motivate to stay in the profession beyond set retirement age. I knew nurses were the catalyst for healthcare. My results were impressive. Like the millenniums, baby boomers want similar incentives while money is not the in the top three. Hence, my interest lies in job development and employment gaps.
