Kim Pryor has been a member of the greater Jacksonville area for 29 years and worked 28 years as an information technology expert for a mortgage banking software and data provider.
She is a founding member and current Vice President of Preservation SOS, Inc., a grassroots non-profit formed in 2010 to fight demolition of historic structures in Springfield and to work toward restoration of those structures.
She served on the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus Board of Directors from 2009 to 2010, and was appointed by Mayor Alvin Brown to the Urban Core Citizens Planning Advisory Committee (CPAC) in 2014. During her tenure on the CPAC, she served as Vice Chair in 2017, 2018 and 2019, and is currently in her 3rd term as Chair. Kim is also a member of the Mayor’s Community Based Crime Reduction Program, a federally funded program that has three key goals: reduce crime, increase mutual trust between law enforcement and community stakeholders, and improve public safety in Mid-westside Jacksonville neighborhoods (Grand Park, New Town, Durkeeville and LaVilla).
Community has always been important to Kim. To give her daughter a home base to be proud of. Kim's life revolved around her daughter as she was growing up. Today her daughter proudly is serving in the U.S. Air Force. She is married and has two children.
On Kim down time she spends time restoring Historic houses, playing with her dog Layla and singing.
The Springfield community is where Kim has called home for the past 14 years.
