In the winter months, you can count on finding Kim somewhere in the mountains – most likely in Colorado – with her board. She loves exploring new trails and learning new tricks in the park with the help of her brother and friends. Some of her favorite mountain resorts are Wolf Creek, Park City, Keystone and Loveland.

During Kim’s time at Glenn|Partners, she has worked on Ventana Elementary School for FWISD.

First Moment when you realized you wanted to be an Architect

My whole life I have loved to draw and paint, so much so that I considered majoring in Art in college. I have also always loved puzzles. However, when a family friend asked for my creative input while designing their custom home in my senior year of high school, I realized Architecture could be a good fit for me. It provides a creative outlet while accommodating my affinity for puzzles.
