Based in Juneau, Alaska, Kim Champney Consulting provides planning, facilitation and training expertise to human services stakeholders including nonprofit organizations and governmental entities. While not limited to the field of developmental disability services, Champney Consulting has over 20 years of experience in this area.

Champney Consulting provides skilled, objective facilitation to guide organizations and groups in a process that results in successful outcomes. Kim brings many years of “boots on the ground” experience which includes:

  • Senior leadership position in a mid-size nonprofit organization for over 15 years, including budget development, workforce management and quality assurance systems design

  • Active participation in statewide initiatives ranging from workforce development to Medicaid reform

  • Leadership position with statewide provider association including two terms as president

  • Many years developing and delivering staff training in the field of disability services including five years adjunct faculty with the University of Alaska Anchorage teaching distance classes statewide

  • Graduate of the National Leadership Institute on Developmental Disabilities, catalyst behind the Alaska Leadership Institute and faculty member

  • Foraker certificate in nonprofit management 

  • Masters in Social Work with focus on macro-level systems and community development

These various experiences have provided a depth of understanding of the myriad of challenges facing service-oriented organizations, particularly in the changing field of long-term care.

Nationwide, services to people with disabilities and elders are shifting due to increasing demands, changing funding streams, workforce shortages and new technology. It’s imperative that reform occurs in a way that won’t destroy the current service system while also increasing opportunities for people who rely on these systems. Kim can assist service providers in responding to system changes as well as inform state partners of the daily realities. In addition, Champney Consulting can provide guidance to strengthen organizations and increase resiliency as these systems and economic changes take their toll.
