Prior to that, Kim spent 13 years serving an administrative support role in the social services field, ensuring essential resources for youth in foster care and foster care providers. In previous professional lives, she has worked as a marketing writer, instructional assistant, and skills mentor.

Kim was born and raised on the island of Oʻahu where she spent many hours reading and daydreaming while waiting for the bus. Later, she spent some time in Northern California (ask her about the time she fell asleep on a Greyhound bus and woke up in Santa Barbara) before making a home in Portland. She enjoys exploring Oregon’s coastal and desert landscapes, including all the coffee shops, wineries, and tattoo artists that make the state special.
