Why I love Hope
She loves the gorgeous campus, thoughtful and amazing students, and the community of faculty, staff and donors who truly care about Hope and its students.
Outside The College
Kim loves to travel, read and spend time at home. She is passionate (perhaps too passionate) about animal rescue/adoption and loves her adopted family: her black cat Boo Radley and her pit bull mixes, Luna and Brontë. She and her husband live in the historic district and love being part of the Holland community. They are not fond of the creepy music from the Holland ice cream trucks.
