Kim is a pediatrician, a wife, and a mom with deep roots in the 8th District. She has built a pediatrics practice there over the past 16 years, taking care of thousands of children and their families from all over the region. Her son goes to the local public school, which she and her husband strongly support. Health care has always been Kim’s passion. She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as a teenager. Spending all that time in doctors’ offices led to her career as a pediatrician. Kim knows firsthand what it means to worry about health insurance and rising costs. She is the daughter of an elementary school teacher and an aerospace engineer, and the product of public schools, with degrees in astrophysics and medicine. She is committed to improving public schools so every student graduates high school with the skills they need for college or career.
Kim will work to build a middle-class-centered economy so that everyone who works hard benefits, and she will protect Social Security and Medicare from cuts. Kim will work to keep our air and water clean and transition to a clean energy economy to slow the rate of climate change. And she will keep working to strengthen our health care system until every person in this country has access to affordable, high-quality care. There are no women doctors in Congress today. Kim will provide a vital missing voice as Congress debates women’s health care, reproductive rights, and children’s health.
