Kim Lott, a former U.S. Navy veteran, oversees the Veterans’ Program at CareerSource Palm Beach County, where auxiliary services are easily accessible to people with disabilities and equal opportunity is a given for veterans. As she has served her country, Kim has been helping veterans find jobs since the early 2000s and helping businesses find the qualified and engaged workers they need for long-term success.

Summary

A former veteran of the U.S. Navy, Kim Lott serves as the Supervisor of the Veterans’ Program at CareerSource Palm Beach County. CareerSource Palm Beach County is an equal opportunity program and veteran’s preference employer that ensure auxiliary services are available upon request to disabled individuals.
