Before joining the SOJC faculty, Kym taught graphic design for three years, first in New York City, and then in London. While in London she managed a full-time design program, training instructors, mitigating student experience, teaching, and graduating 100+ students a year with professional design portfolios.

She loves teaching the design process and believes that all students can be successful creatives with the right tools, research, and inspiration.
