About Kim

Kimberly Wallgren is the Executive Director of the CERN Foundation, a program of the National Brain Tumor Society. Kim brings a breadth of professional experience to NBTS, but also a true passion born from her personal experience of her father’s diagnosis and survivorship of anaplastic ependymoma. Under Kim's leadership the CERN Foundation has built the leading ependyoma tumor focused community in the United States and globally that raises public awareness, advances medical research and provides support and advocacy to this often underserved disease affecting children and adults. Bringing nearly fifteen years experience of interacting with patient families, she is passionate about the individual experience of a CNS tumor diagnosis and seeks to influence outcomes by providing direction and education at critical points of the journey. She has demonstrated her commitment to collaboration between all stakeholders and bridges gaps between industry leaders and the patient community. Previously, Kim held product management roles at a pharmaceutical company and a medical device company providing her with a holistic view of the neuro oncology space. She earned her degree from Virginia Tech University.
