Kim has been a Board Member since October 2017 and was instrumental in developing and publishing our Strategic Plan in 2018. The plan will inform the direction of the organization over the next 3 -5 years. Kim is full-time Associate Professor in the Business Department at SUNY Adirondack teaching economics, personal finance, marketing and agricultural business. Kim’s courses help to promote and build awareness for the new agricultural business degree, and her teachings are directly in line with PMCF’s mission and goals for community involvement in local food growth. Kim also teaches Start-Up Adk, a business planning course sponsored by SUNY ACC and the local county LDCs for those thinking of starting a new small business or expanding an existing business, which has included many farm and food businesses. Kim and her husband owned and operated one of the first farm-to-table operations in this area, The Farmhouse at Top of the World in Lake George, where they had a restaurant, 5 acre market farm, a CSA and sold at Farmers' Markets in Bolton Landing, Glens Falls and Troy. She was a founding member of Slow Food Saratoga and served on the board of Farm to Chef Express, which helped farmers in Washington and Saratoga County sell products to NYC chefs.

Kim lives with her husband and three children on a farm adjoining Pitney Meadows. She holds a Master's Degree in Food Policy and Applied Nutrition from the Friedman School of Nutrition at Tufts University. The Farm is important to Kim because she believes it's important to keep agricultural lands in agriculture to grow food for our community, preserve open space and as a place to teach new and beginner farmers and other interested in growing and eating healthy food.
