She is an Assistant Professor and Division Director of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, the fourth highest ranked Otolaryngology department in the nation.

During her time in Chicago, she also obtained a Master in Public Health (MPH) degree because of her passion for serving those who are medically underserved, both in the United States and abroad.

Dr. Kim’s practice focuses exclusively on aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck. Outside of her roles in clinical practice, research, and education, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling (arguably too often), and the arts.
