20 April 1961
Kim was born in Broken Hill and is recognised in the FWSHF for her achievements in gymnastics. Kim’s competitive nature was apparent from a young age and as a junior gymnast made her mark, culminating in the 1974 Australian Junior Squad. The following year, Kim was named in the National Elite Gold Squad, which led to her membership of the Australian Woman’s Artistic Gymnastics Team in which she competed all around the world.
In 1978, Kim was selected to represent Australia at the Commonwealth Games in Canada, an accomplishment that put the talent of Broken Hill’s gymnasts on the map.
Not only was Kim a gymnast, but a gymnastics coach as well, starting in Adelaide and continuing on in Canada, where she lived for 11 years. Kim also managed several Kindergyms in Adelaide and helped shape the inaugural Kindergym Instructor training programs in both Australia and Canada.
During her time in Canada, Kim was also a Director of Recreation at a community centre, a Manager of an environment impact assessment research centre at Carleton University and an Executive Administrator for Environment Canada’s Research and Development Advisory Board. On her return to Australia in 1998, Kim worked in the public relations and education units of the Canadian High Commission in Canberra before moving back to Adelaide in 2000 to work at the University of Adelaide where she was the Director of Alumni Relations until the end of 2015.
Kim followed in her father’s footsteps, a member of the Rotary Club of Broken Hill South, joining the Rotary Club of Brighton in South Australia in 2003. She became President in 2005 to 2006 and was the President of the Rotary Club of Holdfast Bay in 2020 to 2021. Kim was the District Governor for District 9520 (that includes Broken Hill) in 2018 to 2019, in this role she brought 400 Rotarians to Broken Hill for her annual conference in April 2019.
