She has co-authored along with Barnett Pearce and Jesse Sostrin, CMM Solutions. Additionally, she has written and co-authored a number of book chapters and articles.

Kim is retired from teaching but is currently the President of the CMM Institute. She lives with her husband, Fred Bull, in Oracle Arizona.
