Kim is a writer, reader, and grammar nerd. Passionate about the written word, she believes that mastering the nuances of the English language is essential to excelling professionally, scholastically, and personally. When not defending the merits of the Oxford comma, she can be found doing yoga, drinking too much coffee, attempting to read 100 books in a year, and working on her first novel. She currently splits her time between the Pacific Northwest, Arizona, and Australia.
Kim has been writing and editing for over five years. Most recently, she was an editor at Queensland Magazines in Australia, where she managed the daily editorial aspects of three print and digital publications. She has worked both as an in-house and freelance copywriter for various marketing and advertising firms, creating content for clients in industries as diverse as hospitality, medicine, manufacturing, vegan food services, personal finance, and law. Her writing has appeared in publications including The Hollywood Reporter, Reader's Digest, and Taste of Home, among others.
Kim graduated from Georgetown University's Honors English program and spent time studying creative writing and English literature at Cambridge University and Oxford University, respectively. Throughout her collegiate career, she worked as an editor at The Hoya, the student-run newspaper and tutored writing to kindergarten students through doctoral candidates.
Currently, she is a first-year MFA student at the University of Arizona, where she specializes in fiction and teaches freshman composition and rhetoric.
