Zonta Club of Laramie’s 2014 Zontian of the Year is Kim Frazier. The ceremony took place during the May meeting with 2013 Zontian of the Year Becky Kosach presenting the award to Kim. Becky spoke about the consistent contributions Kim has made to the club since she joined Zonta in 2008. Kim has always been a Zontian to step up and say yes. She served as a Director of the Zonta Club from 2008 – 2009, President from 2010 – 2011, and a Director again from 2012 – 2014. Kim also served on the nominating committee in 2014, as Rose Day Chair in 2013, and will serve as Masquerade Ball Co-Chair in Fall 2014. She has served on numerous committees within Zonta since she joined the club in 2008.

Kim lives in Laramie, Wyoming with her boyfriend, Mike, and her two fur-kids, Tonka and Myra. She enjoys mountain biking, skiing and occasionally running.

Kim attained a Bachelor’s of Science in Molecular Biology and a Master’s of Science in Pharmacology (Forensic DNA and Serology). She has been employed as a Forensic Program Manager for the Wyoming Game and Fish Wildlife Forensic and Fish Health Lab for 15 years. In 2003, Kim was awarded the Support Person of the Year, which was presented by the Wyoming Game Warden Association. In 2005, she was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from Law Enforcement Unit of Colorado Division of Wildlife, and was also awarded an Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Conservation Law Enforcement through The International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.
