Kim's salon was more than a place for haircuts and style; it was a haven of smiles, happiness, and love, where everyone was greeted with a warm embrace and left feeling like family.

Kim's interests were as vibrant and diverse as her personality. She found joy in hairstyling, not just as a profession but as a way to connect with people and be part of their lives. Her love for traveling took her to breathtaking destinations such as Italy, Sicily, Colorado, and the varied landscapes of the Southwest and Northeast. Kim relished the opportunity to explore mountains and meander through mountain backroads, as much as she cherished the tranquility of the sea.
An avid shopper, Kim could often be found in search of the perfect find, reveling in the simple pleasure of shopping. Her enthusiasm for sports was equally evident, as she rooted for the St. Louis Cardinals and The Saint Louis Blues Hockey with fervor. Above all, Kim loved spending time at home, surrounded by family and friends, where her heart truly resided.

Those who knew Kim would describe her as loving, kind, and adventurous. Her spirit was uncontainable, and her zest for life was infectious. She approached every day with a sense of wonder and embraced every experience with an open heart. Kim's presence was a source of comfort and joy, and her absence will be felt deeply.
