MSGOP Spotlights Kim Remak of Olive Branch
The MSGOP is proud to spotlight Kimberly Carter Remak — a proud Christian, conservative, and a life-long Mississippian. Kimberly and her husband, Dr. Geza Remak, reside in Olive Branch where she is a mother to Isaac and twins JJ and Jon Tyler. Jon Tyler has significant disabilities and is unable to live independently.
With 25 years of experience in the nursing field, Kimberly achieved several outstanding service awards during her career. Notably, she was the recipient of the Excellence of Nursing Practice from Baptist Memorial Hospital, and was honored for her outstanding dedication by the Medical Executive Committee of the Metropolitan Market.
In 2013, Kimberly co-founded a local non-profit organization, The Arc of Northwest Mississippi, to serve as a resource for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. She currently serves as President of the Board of Directors. The Arc of Northwest Mississippi was selected as Non-Profit Leader of the Year by the Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi. Kimberly was nominated two years in a row by the Southaven Chamber of Commerce as Non-Profit Leader of the Year and Woman of the Year in 2016. She was also nominated for the Give Award by the state of Mississippi and the Mississippi Commission for her outstanding volunteer service to the people of Mississippi.
A staunch conservative, Kimberly currently serves as Second Vice-President of the DeSoto County Republican Women, First Congressional District Director for the Mississippi Federation of Republican Women, Vice-chair of the DeSoto County Republican Executive Committee, and is a member of the Mississippi Republican Party’s State Executive Committee. Most recently, Kimberly melded her work for disabled individuals by avidly supporting and promoting passage of the Achieving A Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act that was signed into law by Governor Bryant earlier this year.
Through her deep faith and passion to help others, Kimberly has spent countless hours volunteering in her community, serving on eminent committees, and advocating for Mississippi to be a better place to live and raise a family.
