New COO Named to Boys & Girls Village
Milford, CT – Kimberly Shaunesey, Ph.D., with Boys & Girls Village (BGV) since 2005, was recently promoted from VP of Clinical Services to Chief Operating Officer. Kim joined BGV during a pivotal time as the agency was greatly expanding its array of behavioral health services for youth and their families. Her extensive experience in clinical therapeutic work with children prior to coming to BGV was critical to her being recruited to join the BGV leadership team.
Prior to joining BGV, Kim was the Coordinator of Bridgeport Hospital’s REACH, a child day treatment program. With experience running an intensive milieu based clinical program for children, she joined BGV to oversee their day treatment programs. Soon after joining BGV she developed outpatient clinics in Bridgeport and Milford, allowing for improved community access and greatly expanding the number of clients in care. In her role as VP of Clinical Services, she was instrumental in bringing to BGV treatments needed to care for trauma victims: specialized treatments known as “evidenced-based models” of care and a first of its kind in the state residential program for youth with problem sexual behavior. She is also the current President of the Board of CATSO, an organization whose members are proficient in providing treatment for individuals with problem sexual behaviors.
“Kim sets a pace and a standard of excellence that have been essential to Boys & Girls Village’s growth and reputation as one of Connecticut’s premier treatment agencies for at-risk youth,” shares CEO Steven M. Kant, M.D.
When not busy managing much of the organization’s daily operations, Kim is busy shuttling her 14 year old daughter between many activities including dance class, horseback riding, and book club. In her spare time – if any is left – Kim participates in a book club, and maintains a rigorous fitness routine. Shares Dr. Shaunesey, “My promotion to Chief Operating Officer was a big change, as it meant becoming more involved with Business, Human Resources, the school and facilities. I am now involved and participating in every department in relation to how that affects the programs, procedures, and the agency operations.”
Boys & Girls Village recently celebrated 70 years in service. They serve children and families in at-risk situations by strengthening their ability to succeed in life. For more information visit www.bgvillage.org
