Kim is a Harvard educated architect with over 35 years of experience creating sustainable design solutions.


We are so excited for the expertise and passion that she brings to our team, and now coming to El Paso with a renewed vision for life and community. Kim specializes in sustainable solutions, is a brilliant collaborator, shares a deep love for people, and exhibits generous faith among her neighbors and colleagues.


Kim is eager to connect with anyone who wants to learn more about Abara House, and how people can join the process of restoring Historic Hacienda as stewards and neighbors working together. In her spare time, she enjoys breaking bread with friends, growing her garden, and traveling especially to the National Parks.


Her faith compels her work, which makes her life so compelling.
