I met Kim through the Tampa Bay Technology Forum somewhere around 2002, and on top of her duties as a CEO fir her own companies, Kim volunteered her time at Computer Mentors Group and even led a team of her staff to build our first truly professional website, all gratis. Most of my other work has been through her philanthropic work and as treasurer on for the Board of Directors at Computer Mentors. We have maintained a relationship with Kim and her husband Ron at K.Tek International where they continue to provide hosting services for our non-profit organization. I would highly recommend them as they are always very responsive to all of our needs and issues.”
