As a former flight attendant, Kim loves to travel. Married to an Army officer, they spent 15 years moving around the U.S. to various military bases before landing in Washington, D.C. In 2005, she left the increasingly “not-so-friendly” skies for work with a medical specialty society. She and her husband always felt a pull towards the Caribbean and visited often over the years.

After selling their home, storing 20 boxes in her sister’s basement, and holding a crazy estate sale, Kim and her husband shipped a container with their remaining belongings to Anguilla to experience life on a rock. She still considers herself an island newbie and looks forward to years of adventures in paradise.
