Hello! My name is Kim and I’m so honored and excited to begin this next chapter of my career as Social Media Coordinator with the incredible team here at Imagine Media. They are genuinely the most kind-hearted, intelligent, and creative group of people that I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know and I’m lucky to call them my new work family.
While my home away from home encompasses exposed brick walls and a rustic, industrial-chic office just steps away from Ponce City Market, Pittsburgh, Pa is home. Although I was born in Miami, Florida, my family moved to the Steel City only one month later, which is where I grew up with my three siblings. Fast forward 21 years and dozens of Steelers games later, I graduated from Penn State University with an advertising/marketing degree and a passion for creative work.
Shortly thereafter, I moved to Philadelphia and worked as an assistant to the top Personal Shopper at Neiman Marcus in King of Prussia. Not only was she my mentor, but she also became one of my best friends and is someone that I admire both personally and professionally. She taught me everything that I know about high fashion/styling, but also life lessons and the importance of building meaningful relationships. It was one of the best experiences of my life and one that came to an end in the summer of 2016. That summer also brought the best experience of my life, and lots of other changes. My husband (then fiancé), Justin, graduated from Drexel Medical School and was accepted into the residency program here at Emory!
June 11, 2016 we got married in the tiny town of Loretto, Pa on my Grandparent’s farm. It’s a magical place filled with tradition and family history, and we were so humbled to be the 19th family wedding at the farm (my parents were the 4th). After honeymooning in Hawaii, we moved to Atlanta for Justin to begin his residency, which is what brought me to Imagine Media. I’m so excited that my path has led me here and can’t wait to continue my journey as an Imagineer!
