Dr. Kim grew up in Southern California and attended undergraduate school at Harvey Mudd College where she studied biology and chemistry. She worked in research after graduation, but soon realized that she had no passion for her work. She eventually started working at a veterinary hospital, and realized her passion for veterinary medicine. She graduated from Colorado State University with a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree. She has been practicing veterinary medicine at Banfield since graduation. In her free time, she loves being active and outdoors, participating in the performing arts, and spending time with her family, including her two cats, Penny Lane and Abbey Road.
