Kim began coming to Banner Elk in 1991 when her parents were part-time residents at Elk River. She attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and graduated in 1980 with a B.A. in Business Administration. Upon graduation, she began work with Western Publishing Company; a subsidiary of Mattel, Inc.

Upon leaving Western Publishing, Kim started an automotive collision repair facility in Charlotte, NC. She was the owner and vice president for 25 years. The business grew to become a certified repair facility for Mercedes Benz USA.

Kim retired in 2007 and she and her husband, David, split their time between Hilton Head, SC; Charlotte, and Banner Elk. She continues to serve as a community volunteer for charities in Hilton Head and Charlotte and looks forward to her role in giving back to the community of Banner Elk and Lees-McRae.
