Kim began her veterinary career while still in high school working at a small/large animal mixed practice. She has held almost every position in a hospital since then. She became interested in veterinary management during her 15 year employment at VCA BAVS. She held the position of Executive Director of the Alameda County Veterinary Medical Association for 6 years. She joined VCA Lewelling in 2012 and VCA Animal Care Clinic in 2021. Kim continues to work toward her goal of becoming a certified veterinary practice manager.
Animals immediately became Kim's first love. She grew up with a variety of household pet dogs, chickens, rodents, fish and birds. Kim enjoys hiking, roller skating, boating, and camping, but her second love in life is cars. She enjoys motorsports, hot rods and muscle cars. With her husband, she owned a Bay Area auto repair facility specializing in classic cars. She now lives on 5 acres with her husband, Ryan, and their four "kids"—a Lab mix, two Pit Bulls and a Great Dane—and many cars.
