Kim is a Pharm. D. and community advocate. She has more than 20 years’ experience as a practicing pharmacist, as well as years of demonstrated commitment to helping people in need via community organizations such as Love INC and Dispensary of Hope.
A 1981 graduate of Purdue University School of Pharmacy, Kim had a 17-year career with Walgreens, the nation’s largest drugstore chain. Kim served there in the capacities of pharmacist, pharmacy manager, and store manager in Houston, Milwaukee, Boston, and Las Vegas.

She followed her doctorate with five years of service at the outpatient anticoagulation clinic of Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, Illinois.
