Board Member

Kim and her husband Joe have pursued a mutual passion for architecture and design restoring and renovating many properties between San Diego and Palm Springs during their 34 years of marriage-most notable the 25 year renovation of their current 1935 Italian-inspired home in
San Diego.

In addition to all things Italian-Kim and Joe’s interest in mid-century architecture led them to Palm Springs where they purchased their first home in 2003 in Rancho Mirage. During their tenure in Rancho Mirage they also purchased a 1959 William F. Cody, FAIA designed condo at Racquet Club Garden Villas in 2011. Shortly after purchasing Kim was elected HOA President. As President she led in the completion of the Class 1 Historical Designation for the community- granted by the City of Palm Springs in 2013.

Kim and Joe’s love affair with Palm Springs and their quest for new projects inspired them to buy and sell a few more modern/mid-century properties-which have been published and open for tours.

Kim’s passion for the arts and philanthropy led her to The San Diego Museum of Art where she served as the co-chair of the museum’s major fundraiser Art Alive for three years and additionally to The Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center where she and Joe are Founding Members.

Kim’s most recent project-serving as the Fundraising Chair for The Palm Springs Architectural Alliance- raised the funds needed for the publication of an important academic architectural book by Alan Hess- The Palm Springs School: 1930-1980 -projected release in 2024.

Retiring in 2018 from Joe’s Dental Practice where Kim served as Business Director for 25 years has allowed Kim and Joe to spend more time in Palm Springs.
Kim served on the PS ModCom Board from 2013-2020 and is thrilled to return in 2023!
