Following a comprehensive search process, Christian Opportunity Center promoted longtime employee Kim Koellner to Regional Director of Vocational and Day Services after an 11-year stint as Program Manager in Oskaloosa.
Koellner joined COC in 1987 as a Residential Advisor in an Intermediate Care Facility. She transferred to Oskaloosa in 1989 and began working as a Work Skills Supervisor, a position she held for 12 years. In 2001, Koellner was promoted to Associate Manager before being moving into the Program Manager role in 2004.
Koellner began her new duties in November.
“I am most looking forward to being able to provide the highest quality of services for the individuals we support and to always demonstrate to others COC’s mission,” Koellner said.
COC’s mission is to integrate Christian values in teaching skills for life.
Founded in 1969, COC provides residential and vocational support and services to nearly 300 people with disabilities in Dallas, Mahaska, Marion, Polk and Warren counties.
