Kim says, "I spent the last month thinking about everything I've accomplished with my previous employer over the last eight years. So many employees, vendors, media representatives told me how much they enjoyed our products. Such kind words always warmed my heart and made me push forward...However, I am an entrepreneur by nature. I see potential in the new premium skincare and I feel now is the right time to turn the page and accept the offer from Viale Beauty. I've always been in love with the startup culture, I am an explorer, and I enjoy the voyage of discovery. The journey is the reward..."
