Kim and her husband, Bob, made Summit County their home 30 years ago. They raised their two children here, Jenny and Scott. Kim graduated Cum Laude from the University of Utah in Organizational Communications and has a background in corporate sales and training. Kim was the Executive Director of the Park City Education Foundation and then was elected to the Park City Board of Education for two terms, serving as president for four years.

Kim was first elected to the Summit County Council in 2012, and is now in her second term and serving as Chair. She is vice-chair of the Council of Governments. Kim serves on the Utah Association of Counties Board of Directors, and serves on its Legislative Committee. She is a member of the Summit County Board of Health, and is on the Executive Committee of its Summit County Mental Health Alliance. She represents Summit County on the Mountainlands Association of Governments Executive Council and its Community Development Block Grants Committee. Kim is a member of the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest Service Resource Advisory Committee.

Kim still has a passion for education. She is a former member of the University of Utah College of Education Advisory Board, and a member and past president of P.E.O., a philanthropic educational organization that provides scholarships and loans to deserving women locally, nationally, and internationally. She serves on the Ruth S. Clayton Scholarship Committee.

Kim and Bob enjoy the outdoors riding their horses, hiking and skiing with their dog, biking, rafting and gardening. Kim is still determined to learn how to knit; it just seems to have taken the back burner!
