A native of New Zealand, Kim has been living in the San Francisco Bay Area for two decades. She joined Night Train Swimmers in 2011 and was on the first ever successful Farallon Islands relay swim.
Kim is a classically trained ballerina and former rower at UC Berkeley. After an accident, in which she nearly lost her leg, she began swimming as part of rehabilitation and got hooked. In addition to three Farallones Relays, Kim has completed the Oceans Seven, and most recently she set a world record becoming the first woman to swim solo from the Farallon Islands the Golden Gate Bridge.
In September 2015, Kim will join five teammates for a 300 mile swim in the San Francisco Bay in an attempt to break the world record for the longest relay open water swim in history. Stay tuned for NT300 updates. Woo!
