In 2003 Kim decided to pursue her interest in the outdoors by studying science and moving to Fairbanks. Since then Kim has conducted biology technician work for a variety of organizations in Alaskan locations including work on Fort Wainwright lands, Denali National Park and Preserve, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and most recently on the sea ice in Barrow. Kim enjoys hiking, canoeing, doing Tai Chi, juggling, and dancing (Tango, Salsa, Afro-Cuban).
