Kim Sorenson Joins Intereum as Education Sales Consultant
Intereum, a dealership that specializes in creating working, learning, and healing environments, has hired Kim Sorenson to join the Educational Team to advance the design of educational facilities that inspire creativity, cognition, collaboration, and community.
(Plymouth, MN – December 13, 2013) Proudly joining the Intereum team is Kim Sorenson, CID, IIDA. Kim joins Intereum with a wealth of industry knowledge and experience gained throughout her nearly 19 years as an Interior Designer and Director of Design with ATS&R Architects. Over the course of her career, Kim focused her work on designing K-12 educational facilities throughout MN, WI and the East Coast. Kim’s role as a designer held high importance on delivering quality through the design focus, sustainable products, and creating spaces that were safe, warm, and nurturing environments. Having researched many learning methods and the fundamentals of how design impacts experiences for both students and faculty, Kim has developed spaces that put an emphasis on the 21st century learner, which included spaces that supported learning and technology, collaboration, and keeping current with the tools and resources that staff and students need today and tomorrow.
A standout experience for Kim took place in 2010 when she traveled to the Middle East to work on an extensive project for the Abu Dhabi Education Council. On this project, Kim was responsible for researching, educating, and recommending K-12 furniture products for 13 new elementary schools located in Abu Dhabi and its adjacent emirates. In conjunction with the ATS&R design team, she helped write furniture guidelines and specifications for nearly 200 furniture pieces, procure mockups, and compile bid tenders for ADEC.
The breadth of work that Kim has done with furnishings, space planning, managing budgets, and project coordination will make Kim a key contributor to projects and partnerships with Intereum’s clients. Outside of work, Kim enjoys being active in the community through volunteer efforts, such as Green Apple Day of Service, the Food Shelf, and staying fit as a competitive cyclist, runner, and triathlete.
