Kim started working for Winnebago County in 2013 and joined the Wittman Regional Airport team in September of 2021. With a parent working for a company that frequently flew private planes to satellite offices, Kim was able to experience the benefit that planes brought to an office as well as the simple joy of taking a plane ride. This grounded Kim’s interest in planes and her enjoyment of being around them.

Kim moved to the Oshkosh area in 2005 from the east coast and has enjoyed living here with her husband and three children. Her family keeps her pretty busy outside of work with their sports schedules. During the summer, Kim likes to take time to relax on their boat and enjoys watching the planes fly into the airport from Lake Winnebago.

Kim performs administrative duties for Wittman Regional Airport under the direction of Airport Director Jim Schell. She also supports the work of the Deputy Airport Director and Maintenance & Operations Manager.
