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

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.

She graduated Magna Cum Laude from West Liberty University.
