Kim joined Freestone in 1999 as one of the firm’s five original members. She initially served as Freestone’s Operations Manager and Compliance Officer before transitioning back to the client side to pursue her passion for building relationships. She enjoys working directly with clients to help them navigate the complexities that wealth inevitably brings. Kim provides wealth management advice and service to some of the firm’s most affluent families. She works closely with her clients’ CPAs and attorneys to form a holistic approach to their wealth management needs. Kim began her career in the investment industry in 1992 at Smith Barney. She served in supervisory roles in Operations and Compliance before joining Gary Furukawa’s team as a Portfolio Management Associate.


Kim earned a BA in Criminal Justice and expected to become a lawyer; instead, she discovered her passion in taking care of clients and financial services.
