Kimberly Hall came to Bluffton Self Help two years ago from Orlando, Florida where she most recently led statewide marketing, volunteer and fund development functions for Easterseals Florida. Her mission is to continue with Mrs. Ida Martin’s legacy of serving the Bluffton community and individuals in need while delivering resources to help them become self-sufficient within the community. Kim holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Central Florida in Orlando and Masters in Business Administration from The University of Tampa. She and her husband, Chris, reside in Bluffton with their two young children. They have developed a love for the community and the people for which is serves.
Tonya is a native of Hilton Head Island and is blessed with knowledge of the locals and southern charm. She received her Bachelors degree from University South Carolina-Beaufort while raising 2 children, Christopher and Danielle. She also volunteers her time with the local youth football and cheer organization—Hilton Head Gators and with the local school system. Through the last two years, her role at Bluffton Self Help has evolved as she combines her unique blend of creative ideas and operation administration to manage numerous programs and devoted volunteers while preserving the vision of Mrs. Ida Martin. “I truly want to see everyone succeed in life. I cannot be successful in life if I cannot help my neighbors over their obstacle,” says Tonya. Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it. Proverbs 3:27
