Stamford COTY is happy to recognize Kimberly Morant as a distinguished veteran.
Kimberly was born in Stamford on September 14th, 1965. She attended school in Norwalk at Kendall Elementary and Parkway Christian Academy before graduating from Stamford’s Sacred Heart Academy in the class of ‘84. She attended Fisher Junior College, 1984-1985 and Norwalk Community College, 1985-1986. After NCC, Kimberly moved to Richmond, VA where she attended the Geriatric Nursing Assistant Training Program and obtained a position at the Henrico Healthcare Center assisting elderly patients. After marrying, Kimberly moved to Twentynine Palms Marine Base, in San Bernardino County, California where she joined the United States Navy in May of 1992.
In August 1992, Seaman Morant was assigned as hazmat manager to the San Onofre ARD-30, a floating dry dock (used to submerge under ships damaged below the water line and then raise them out of the water for repair). She successfully made sure that all Material Safety Data Sheets were accounted for and filed, thus ensuring that all inspections were performed and passed. She was also responsible for confirming that all supplies were ordered and that hazardous materials were disposed of properly. SN Morant also volunteered for Vietnam Veterans of San Diego. This organization worked with homeless veterans and their families, for substance abuse recovery, mental and emotional health counseling, and most of all, obtaining benefits and jobs.
Since 1998, Kimberly has been the Unit Coordinator for the Tully Endoscopy Center here in Stamford, where she ensures that patient’s paperwork is in order for treatment, and reports to the director of Peri-Op services to record case cancellations and to ensure proper follow-up. She is also certified in phlebotomy and EKG’s.
Kimberly is also program assistant, at the New Canaan YMCA’s special needs program and is a trainer at the Sarner Health and Fitness Center at Tully. Not one to rest on her laurels, she is currently back at Norwalk Community College studying Exercise Science and Social/Behavioral Science where she will graduate in May, and will continue on in Recreational Therapy this fall.
COTY is glad that Stamford has people like Kimberly.
