Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, Kim started out working alongside her family at a young age in their successful home furnishing business. A graduate from Calvin College with a dual degree in Business and Communication, she is relentless in her pursuit of creating comfortable, functional and calmly sophisticated spaces. While in Grand Rapids, she opened her own home stores, Furniture Etcetera and Eight Hands Gallery.
Over the years her business brought her to Northern Michigan, working on several residential and commercial projects. Kim ultimately made the decision to establish a physical presence in Traverse City, knowing the vibrant atmosphere would be the perfect place to showcase her unique design talents. HomeWorks was then established and proudly thriving in its second year!
Kim has four active children she absolutely adores. She enjoys spending time with them, her family and friends doing anything outdoors. In her rare “free time”, Kim enjoys cooking, baking, biking, skiing and the beach.
