Oprah's Big Give Contestants
Watch Kim's video bio
Kim is a sports marketing executive for the Titans Radio Network. She spent 15 years selling everything from skincare to hunting knives as a host for the TV shopping network Shop at Home. "I can sell ice to an Eskimo," Kim says. A graduate of the University of Tennessee, one of Kim's first jobs was on stage rather than in front of a camera. "I was a clogger for a show at Dollywood," she says. "I was on the clogging team in high school. We were national champions."
Kim and her husband live in Nashville with their two dogs, Taco and Hammer, and a cat named Flabby Abby.
"I didn't think that my life was being lived properly," Kim says. "I felt like I wasn't doing my part. I wanted to be on Oprah's Big Give because I wanted something to really push me out there and force me to make the transformation I was thinking about."
