Kim was born and raised in Calgary. She is proud of her heritage where her great-great-grandfather assisted in building Canadian railroads, which paved the way for her grandfather to eventually immigrate from China to raise his family in Calgary. Her father studied medicine, opened a Chinese medical practice, and continues to practice here in Calgary. This legacy created a long lasting effect on Kim who was inspired hearing the stories of her family’s journey to success through hard work and the support of the welcoming Calgary community. She has always wanted to give back to the community and found within herself the desire to pursue public service.
She started her journey in politics by obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Political Science at the University of Calgary. Once she found a political stripe that she could get excited about, she volunteered her time and efforts on various boards and political associations in multiple levels of government. She has worked in the corporate sector, owned a small business and worked as a public servant for a federal Member of Parliament’s office. She spends her time volunteering in her community, supporting the performing arts and helping great women get elected to political office. Fulfilling these roles have led to many positive relationships with multiple levels of government, and community-based organizations. Her experience in both the private and public sector has provided her with the insight into the acute concerns that Northwest Calgary residents have.
Kim will return fiscal responsibility back to City Hall, and bring respect back to the taxpayer dollars. As City Councilor, she will bring a young and fresh perspective to policy making at the municipal level. Kim looks forward to talking to community members in Ward 2 and developing a policy platform.
Kim lives in Ward 2, where she has resided for over 10 years with her husband and two children. In her spare time, Kim likes to dance, play on a soccer team with her husband and support her children in pursuing their artistic and athletic talents.
