Volunteer Leadership: An advocate for civic engagement, Kim is the founder and board chair of a national nonprofit benefiting cancer research.

In 2021, Kim launched a community trash collection effort called ‘Heal the Hill’ and has annually organized Penninsula wide clean-ups of parks, trails and school areas. During the pandemic, she organized a July 4th parade and outdoor Halloween trunk or treat for families and advocated for the Santa tour coordinated by the PVE police.

Goal: Kim would like PVHA to better serve homeowners in PVE. Working with PVHA should be collaborative and support homeowners and home values. Kim is running for the PVHA Board because elected representatives are fundamental to organizational governance. In the last several decades, there has been an elected board only a few times because a quorum has not been reached. Self-appointed leaders, antiquated practices, lack of transparency, inadequate guidelines, inconsistent rules enforcement, unnecessary delays, preferential treatment for connected architects and designers has been tolerated for too long. The PVHA should be a partner and advocate for shared community goals and home values - transformation is long overdue!
