Born in Santa Monica, Kim is a fourth generation Californian and LA native.  She graduated Cum Laude with a BA in English Literature from USC.  At 22, after three months traveling around Europe with a backpack and Eurorail pass, Kim moved to Washington DC where she worked on Capitol Hill for a Senator and then as a legislative assistant in the private sector.  Five years later, tired of the weather and jaded by the politics, Kim returned to California.  Since then her employment has included the following (in no particular order): waitress, art gallery assistant, advertising account executive, personal assistant, interior designer, pet & house sitter, C-level executive assistant, and writer.

Kim currently resides in Pacific Palisades CA with her pitbull and two cats.
