Prior to starting her own business, Kim started out in nursing school and became an LVN. She took a job as a claims adjuster, then worked in an Accounts Receivable department for a billing service. As she experienced more areas of accounting in her work, she was hooked and attended night school to earn her accounting degree. Today, she has experience in many areas of accounting, including cost accounting (her favorite area), SEC Reporting, complex consolidated financial statements, audit work, and all of the regular accounting and tax areas that small businesses need.
Kim earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from Golden Gate University. When she is not working, she enjoys tennis, plays a good game of pool, cooking new dishes, and watching courtroom dramas and detective shows.
