Kim grew up in Yuma, Arizona and received her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ. She later attended Franklin Pierce University in Manchester, NH where she graduated with her Doctor of Physical Therapy. Wanting to continue her education as a clinician, Kim is also a board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist. Kim loves the fact that in this line of work, she can make an impact and care for such a wide patient population, as most people at some point in their lives encounter an orthopedic problem. Being able to help patients go from painful movement to being pain-free, returning to the activities they enjoy, and helping people feel confident is where Kim finds her passion. Personally, Kim enjoys hiking, photography, and testing out cake recipes as well as decorating pastries with her children. For a fun fact about Kim, she is hoping to complete her goal of walking to the lowest point and highest point in the contiguous United States in 2022!
