Kym is a third year student at UVIC who is hoping to get her bachelors in History with an Art History minor and go to Grad School for Public Administration. She was born and raised here on Lək̓ʷəŋən territory.

This is Kym’s first job at a museum, she previously worked at the Campbell River Art Gallery. When she isn’t working Kym enjoys watching movies, writing needlessly complicated reviews of said movies, embroidery and attempting to knit.”
