Kim joined the New York studio as a project designer in June of 2016. Since joining, she has successfully collaborated on several diverse projects ranging from park design, K-12 school design, downtown revitalizations, streetscapes, and urban master planning including the Green Infrastructure Streetscape Project in Sidney, NY, the Gooseberry Creek Revitalization Strategy in the Village of Tannersville, NY, the Henry Hudson Park Master Plan for the Town of Bethlehem, NY, and the Town of Walton, NY Flood Mitigation Project. She is actively involved in all stages of a project – as a fundamental team member during design charrettes, an involved collaborator during conceptual design, and an efficient project designer through construction documentation, implementation and construction administration. Her educational and professional experiences have spanned across the State of New York and beyond.
Kim encourages alternative perspectives to generate a wholistic and seamless design. Knowing the positive implications of placemaking, she believes in creating place attachment
by focusing on the experiences that engage human and non-human users with their surrounding environment in a compatible relationship. She favors a collaborative design process not only with the PLACE Alliance team and ally disciplines but significantly through community outreach. She understands the imperatives of client relationships, particularly when that client is a community. Kim believes there is nothing more sacred than home, and the most reliable source of knowledge are the people who occupy it.
