In 2005, TV Guide ranked Kim
second in a list of "Canada's Top 10 newcomers on the verge
of a major breakout." Aside from her work with 'eTalk', Kim
has also appeared in 'Puppets Who Kill', 'Degrassi: The Next Generation',

Kim's passion for music and
pop culture is what brought her to 'eTalk', but Kim also wants
to share her love for music with Canada's youth through her role
at MusiCan, an organization that provides instruments to schools
across the country.
Whether she's at a glamorous
event in Los Angeles, meeting high-profile stars or gracing the
covers of magazines, Kim still counts her family as a source of
pride and inspiration.
"Making my parents proud
is what matters -- my dad still tapes every show to this day!"
