She went on to work in food and beverage roles at the Westin Gaslamp Quarter hotel in San Diego, Caffe Gelato Restaurant & Catering in Newark, and Big Fish Restaurant Group, where she served as Manager for the company’s Riverfront and Glen Mills restaurants. Kim earned a BS in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Management from the University of Delaware.
While in college, Kim studied abroad in the Republic of Panama, served on the National Panhellenic Counsel, and sung in the MelUDees Acapella choir. She also worked in North Haven, Maine as a personal assistant for a prominent family’s estate, overseeing a staff that included a personal chef and yachtsman. Kim was born and raised in Delaware, whose summers and beaches hold a special allure.
