As the Knox Heritage Director of Preservation Field Services from 2008-2014, I had the honor of working with Kim to expand the work of Knox Heritage to sixteen counties. Kim’s leadership, tenacity, and entrepreneurial spirit fostered my preservation career. She’s an invaluable member of any team and I look forward to working with her again in her new consulting venture.
