The B-Town Blog has learned that longtime Burien resident Kim McKoy has been named the new Executive Director of Discover Burien, replacing the outgoing Patty Sader, who resigned June 10th.

Kim has over 15 years’ of executive leadership with ACAP Child and Family Services, CIS of Washington, and Friends of the Children.

In addition to working on children’s issues, Kim volunteers with United Way and BurSST for Prosperity.

Kim told BTB that she is “excited for the opportunity to lead Discover Burien.”

“I like to spend leisure time with friends, traveling, enjoying photography, being a complete computer geek, and playing a mean game of spades,” McKoy added. “My greatest joy though is hanging out with my five pound poodle (Pierre) at Lake Burien Park or Seahurst Park at least a few times a week. Oh, and he is the absolute coolest and cutest dog on the planet!”

So…could this mean a business networking dog park meetup sometime soon? Stay tuned…

According to their website:

Discover Burien is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation working on economic development, business recruitment & retention, education, promotion and marketing of the Burien community. We are a membership based organization, but do not limit our services to only members, we include the entire Burien business community.
