Kim (she/her) is a local actor who is drawn to work centered around diverse collaboration and inclusive storytelling.
Kim has had the privilege of working with local companies such as Company One Flat Earth Theatre, Fresh Ink Theatre, Theatre On Fire, Imaginary Beasts, and SpeakEasy Stage Company.
"To know Kim is to love Kim," said her nominator Kim MacCormack. "She's an incredibly talented actor, collaborator, friend, cheerleader, human--she's so unbelievably giving of her time and her space, especially as a scene partner... She is truly down to take risks, which is remarkable and brave and awesome and inspiring to the other performers in the room...Her comedic timing and ability to turn a simple line into a genuine gut-busting memorable moment is outstanding...She's just, simply, the best!"
This summer, Kim will embark on a new role: as Fresh Ink Theatre’s new Public Relations Coordinator. She is excited to join them in their mission of developing new work with theatre artists in the New England area.
In addition to her love for theatre, Kim also has a passion for public libraries. For the past three years, Kim has served as the President of the Friends of the Somerville Public Library, a not-for-profit organization that helps the library and its branches to provide free programming, services, and materials to the community. If you feel as strongly as she does about ensuring public libraries remain safe, accessible spaces for all, Kim encourages you to get involved with your local public library!
