Kim lives in Breckenridge with her husband and two children who attend Summit Middle and High Schools. She graduated high school from a small town in North Dakota and then enlisted in the Air Force (AF). After 6 years, Kim was selected for an AF Reserve Officer Training Corp (ROTC) scholarship to become an officer. She attended the University of San Diego and graduated with a Bachelors of Business Administration degree in 1999. In the Air Force, she worked primarily as an acquisition officer, negotiating and managing multi-million dollar defense contracts. She also completed her MBA from Webster University in 2001. Her last assignment was as a Professor of Aerospace Studies teaching Air Force ROTC cadets at the University of Colorado at Boulder. After serving on active duty honorably for 20 years, she retired from the AF in 2013. After retirement, Kim started her own photography business while also actively volunteering in the classrooms of her two children. She served as the Vice President of Coal Creek Elementary’s Parent Teacher Association in Louisville, CO. Kim looks forward to helping all SSD students succeed by putting her military leadership, project management, and teaching experience to work. Her ultimate goal is to get every child prepared for the next level of their academic career and life after graduation.
