Kim is a Pacific Northwest native and began her career in the travel and tourism industry working for Seattle and King County’s official destination marketing organization. She connected members and their products and services to travel trade, convention planners and the lucrative international and domestic visitor markets. Kim decided to put travel first and embarked on a life-changing adventure around the world. She traveled continuously for nearly 8 months visiting 25 countries. From eating her way through Italy, to riding a camel in the Abu Dhabi desert, trekking to Mt. Everest base camp, to getting lost in the shuffle at Tokyo's Shibuya crossing. Kim returned to Seattle eager to develop experiential travel programs and joined an outbound tour operator where she was responsible for the operational details of small ship and land trips to remote destinations around the world.

Kim has traveled to over 40 countries across 6 continents. She brings her passion for the travel and tourism industry to the Adventure Travel Trade Association and is excited to work with ATTA members and media to facilitate connections and to provide resources that can help businesses grow and strengthen our entire industry.

Kim is a new resident of Bend, Oregon and enjoys paddle boarding, trail running, and hitting the links striving for her 3rd hole-in-one.
