She then moved back into the area and spent 10 years as the Sous Chef at the Warren Conference Center in Ashland, Ma. Kim and her husband started their family in 2012, welcoming their son Andrew in 2012, and daughter Samantha in 2014. While Kim enjoys fine dining, and chasing down her next great meal, her real passion is American classics. She enjoys putting her modern take on classic American dishes with quality ingredients and pulling ideas from her varied culinary past. That’s why when in 2017, long-time friend and Chef Adams Hicks asked her to join his team, she took him up on his offer. In her free time she enjoys going on family outings to the beach, six flags. She also enjoys country concerts, snowboarding and finding new restaurants and breweries around New England.
