She is a member of the non-profit organization Women In Film and Media, where she mentors young women in the broadcasting industry.

Kym lives in the South Hills with her husband and twin daughters. She volunteers and teaches CCD at her church, St. Joan of Arc, and is active in her school’s PTO organization. Kym also volunteers her time supporting many charity organizations throughout Pittsburgh.
Kym has an extensive dance and theater background, and still enjoys taking dance classes at the studio her children attend.
She has training in the martial arts, in the Goju ryu style of karate.
Always thrilled by getting “that great deal,” Kym considers herself an expert bargain-shopper and coupon-clipper and loves sharing her saving secrets with others.
