The Faces Of Our Executive Board
JENNIFER LIMA (SHE/HER)
Founder and President
Lima was inspired to start this group after seeing a similar group in a nearby community enact change in their school department by raising awareness of racial issues within their town. As a long time North Kingstown resident and mother of four children educated within the NK school district Lima recently ran for and was elected to the North Kingstown School committee and is looking forward to advancing diversity and equity in this position. She works at Toray Plastics, is a longtime member of The Herren Project Runs team, and is a sucker for a big slobbery dog.
TRACY WILKINSON (SHE/HER)
Wilkinson is a qualified accountant, having trained with PriceWaterhouse Coopers in the UK and identifies as a serial volunteer. She has been involved with Boy Scouts – as a den leader and as an ongoing merit badge counsellor for Troop 152; took on treasurer of St Paul’s Church in Wickford in the midst of the pandemic; has been treasurer of the LINKS (Laymen in North Kingstown Schools) Board, where she is now employed and helped many of the school PTO’s become registered 501c3 charities whilst acting as their treasurers. She also teaches water fitness at URI and can often be found on deck or in the water singing and working out.
