Notable: Kim played at Apex High School before transferring to Wake Christian before her junior season. … She was an all-tournament selection at the Bulldog Invitational in 2012 and received the teams’ best server award as a senior. … She has played travel volleyball since age 13, including with the N.C. Volleyball Academy. … After receiving her associate’s degree from Wake Tech she plans to transfer to a four-year college and enter the health care field, possibly in nursing. … Kim will become the second member of her family to play volleyball at the collegiate level. Older sister Catherine is a junior volleyball player at Barton College. … Her favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Wake Christian volleyball coach Annette Archer: “I saw great potential in this young athlete. I have seen her grow as an athlete and a person. I am so glad that I got the opportunity to coach her.”

Wake Tech coach Stephanie Sports: “Kim will fit in nicely and she can't get here soon enough. When I told Kim she would be a part of our program she was so excited about the opportunity and those are the players I look forward to coaching: the ones that are appreciative of the opportunity and ready to get started.”
