My name is Kimberly Daneth Tobar Chavez (She/Her/Ella). My parents were born and raised in Guatemala, and I was born in Utah. I have been raised with the Latino and American cultures, which has been a great opportunity for me to explore my identity as a bilingual Guatemalan American. My hobbies include photography, education, music, dance, arts, food, being outdoors, and spending time with loved ones.
I am a Youth Programs Facilitator here at LBHS and provide mentoring services, facilitate Fuerza, and facilitate our substance use support group. I have a bachelors in social work and an Advanced Substance Use Disorder Certificate. I currently attend the University of Utah, where I am working toward my Masters in social work focusing on substance use disorders.
I am passionate about mental health education, substance use education, and prevention and exploring those topics through a holistic lens. I also value our Latino culture tremendously and see how it can play a great part in someone’s recovery.
