Kim is a lifelong dog enthusiast. She grew up in Queens, NY, where her family made a habit of rescuing dogs and cats. Despite being an only child, Kim never felt like one. She thought of her dogs as her siblings.
Kim has been a dog walking volunteer for the Peaceable Kingdom, a nonprofit, no-kill shelter in Allentown, PA. She also rescued Lexi, her collie-shepherd mix, from the Sanctuary at Haafsville in Breinigsville, PA.
Most of her professional work has been behind the scenes in radio and television production. She has also worked as an administrative and purchasing assistant. Although she continues to battle severe, debilitating back pain and numerous treatments for it, she continues to follow the writer’s path in her heart. She writes as an avocation more than as a vocation. She is excited to combine two lifelong passions with writing in order to help beautiful animals in need.
