GET UPDATES FROM Kim Doyle Wille
 
I'm an advocate and activist on behalf of the unemployed, hungry, homeless, etc. and am a former restaurant owner/manager and caterer in the Aspen area. I'm also a trained 11 year mediator in Restorative Justice and a 14 year veteran volunteer firefighter. My skills and passions lie in helping others, creating solutions and doing photography. During the entirety of my careers, I've worked simultaneously volunteering and/or creating non-profits.

When the Great Recession took hold, I began my Hunger Issues & Solutions tours to give the disenfranchised a voice but have come to focus on Great Ideas That Work. I'm on a mission to empower and help communities learn from each other to solve our common but critical issues and to apply pressure on our news media to focus their lenses on solutions and positive journalism/broadcasting. (I'm currently learning HTML so I can finish building my websites, FeedTheUS & GreatIdeasThatWork.)
