Since her college days at NYU, Kim has always been a huge fan of hopping on the PATH to experience the restaurants, events, and nightlife on the other side, and since moving has really enjoyed further getting to explore all that this "mini-city" and the surrounding areas have to offer. These days when not recruiting for her full-time job as a Talent Acquisition Manager at Wunderkind, she can be found running along the Pier to the latest country hits, spending hours putting her Lifetime Movie Club subscription to good use, or likely plotting her next Seamless order to #supportlocalbusinesses.
