Kim’s career in Marketing and Public Relations began in Chicago in 1992 after graduating from Drake University with a BA degree in Journalism. She contributed her writing and promotional design talents to a Medical Public Relations Firm as an Account Executive, and served as Editor of a medical marketing sourcebook for PR professionals.
After relocating to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, she accepted a position as Director of Communications for a Children’s Hospital. This experience allowed Kim to focus her creative energy on promotional fund raising and media campaigns to benefit children with disabilities.
In her next position, she honed her skills as the Public Relations Manager for a leading Art publisher in the San Francisco Bay area. Promoting the talents of artists around the world through monthly newsletters and brochures, magazine articles, advertisements and media tours proved to be a valuable asset for her career. When back in Chicago, she worked on major publicity campaigns for Skidmore Owings and Merrill, one of the largest Architectural Firms in the country.
In 2001, Kim established herself as an Independent Contractor providing her copywriting expertise and electronic marketing skills to a variety of privately held firms specializing in manufacturing, medicine, consumer products and health and beauty.
As the Marketing and Communications Manager for Designing Interiors, Inc., Kim manages all aspects of Maria Hildebrand’s Interior Design brand by promoting her work through social and print media, public relations, event planning and electronic publications.
