ABOUT KIM

Originally from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Kim spent most of her early life boating on the rivers and waterways of the Chesapeake Bay with her family. By age 20, she moved to Tahoe where she lived the mountain life for a few years.  She worked and skied at Squaw Valley in the winter and enjoyed boating on the lake in the summer on her brother’s vintage wooden boat.

Before long, Kim found herself in San Diego. In 1993, she began her sailing career with Harbor Sailboats, a sailing club and ASA sailing school on San Diego Bay. For six years, she managed the office where she mainly focused on charter reservations, scheduling classes, club events, regattas and flotillas for club members. She earned her ASA Bareboat certification and celebrated by skippering a 42-foot catamaran in Tahiti at only 28 years of age. Not bad for a girl!

When her son was born a year later, she decided to start her own web design business, allowing her to work from home. Over 100 websites later, Kim was drawn back into the sailing business where she happily worked part-time for Harbor Island Yacht Club, also a long-time web design client.

It was only a matter of time before Kurt Jerman, owner of West Coast Multihulls and a Denison Yacht Sales broker, discovered that his old friend and colleague from the Harbor Sailboats era was working down the street. With catamaran sales going through the roof and his charter and sailing school business growing steadily, he asked Kim if she would consider working a few days a week for him. She jumped at the opportunity.

Kim has worn many different hats over the past 2 years while working for both West Coast Multihulls and Denison Yacht Sales.  For West Coast Multihulls, she has worked as an event coordinator for fun events such as their Annual Catalina Multihull Rally, Baha Rally, Thailand Flotilla and Summer Sailstice Raft-Up .  For Denison, she handles most of the details and paperwork for brand new Fountaine Pajot and Seawind catamarans as well as used yacht sales. She has helped organize multiple boat shows displays as well as manage the marketing ads for The Log, Sea Magazine and Northwest Yachting. 

It was only natural for Kim to start selling boats on her own.  She recently secured her own yacht sales license and is very proud to be a part of the Denison Yachting sales team now.
