Someone once told me to always remember what is important to you. My priority in life is the people in it – whether it’s my family, friends, coworkers, or clients, I’m consistently inspired by and grateful for the community I live and work in.”

Joining Mahlum in 2013, Kim brings more than 18 years of experience in project architecture and management. Reflecting on her own experiences in the built environment, Kim has a passion for design that enriches the living, learning, and healing environments for all. She is a skilled manager of complex projects and takes pride in listening to the needs of all constituents through the design process.

Committed to serving the profession of architecture, Kim has served on the American Institute of Architects Portland Chapter Board of Directors, and chaired the AIA Committee on Architecture for Education’s Spring 2017 conference. She currently is chair of AIAO’s Legislative Affairs Committee.
