Ralphie and Pea Jae

In addition to her professional endeavors, Kim enjoys spending time with her husband, friends, and their canine companions, Ralphie and Pea Jae. She is passionate about volunteering and providing assistance where possible to those in need. Her brother, born Down Syndrome, was her guiding light, spiritually and musically.  After spending time at home, he was a housemate within the National Barber Institute Group Home and Day Program in Bridgeville.  She and her husband enjoy entertaining and travelling.  They have an antique business, The Alley Cats, which buys, sells and barters items from estates, house sales and clean outs.  We love the history of an item and try to keep all we can from just being discarded.  Kim finds joy in connecting good people with one another, seeking long-term successful partnerships in both her personal and professional life.

Bogey continues to drive The Consult Box forward with a commitment to excellence, efficiency, and strategic partnerships, embodying a career dedicated to maximizing client success across multiple industries.
