Hey there Wiz fans! I’m Kim and a 3rd year veteran with the Wizards Girls.  I can’t believe it’s already season three for me! Each year has been such a memorable experience because of you, the fans! Thank you for your loyalty and support! I’m thrilled to be able to share the 2010-2011 season with you!

What college or university did you attend? James Madison University. LET’S GO DUKES!!!

When you are not at work, in class or dancing with the
Wizards, what is your favorite thing to do
? Besides spending time with my amazing and incredible family, hands down, snowboarding!  There’s nothing better than strapping into my board and flying down the mountain!  I love to stay active and to try anything that gives you an adrenaline rush! However, I don’t always have to be active; I really enjoy lounging on the couch with a good book too.

Favorite thing about being a Wizard Girl
? Interacting with the loyal Wiz fans, performing and entertaining on the court, and the incredible opportunities this job provides!

What was your most interesting job
? Working on the TV show, “The Wire”.

Something most people don’t know about you
? My dream job would be to put together soundtracks for movies, I’m terrified of pigeons in DC, and I make a pretty phenomenal salsa!

Favorite thing about DC
? I love residing in such close proximity to the pulse of this great nation!  The energy of this city is incredibly motivating!

3 words that describe you best
: Vibrant, cheerful, intelligent.

What’s one thing you can’t live without
: My iPod!

What animated character are you most like
? I’d say Ariel. Besides the obvious red-haired attribute, her character has many similarities to my personality. She is enthusiastic, always dreaming, and doesn’t let anything hold her back.  She likes a challenge, very much like I do!

TV Show: Entourage, and Anything on the food Network
Movie: Transformers I and II (I love the graphics!), and recently, Inception

Quote/Saying:
I have two:
“… Whatever is true, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if something is excellent or praiseworthy, think about these things.” Phillipians 4:8

“Around here, however, we don’t look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things…. And curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” – Walt Disney

Who do you admire most and why? My parents. They are both so inspiring to me! They’re strong in their faith, are extremely driven, and have been amazing role models.  They have provided so much, growing up and in my adulthood. I am so grateful for them and couldn’t have asked for better parents! I hope to make an impact in the same way that they have impacted my life and those around them!
