Kim Hanks

Co-Founder & CEO

Born in Dallas, Texas but raised in rural Arkansas and California by her mother and both sets of grandparents, family is of the utmost importance to Kim and plays a critical role in how she and Whit run their company. A lover of all things living, Kim has always been interested in zoology and television broadcasting and dreamt of becoming the next Jack Hannah or Crocodile Hunter!

Kim’s path to the hospitality industry was a serendipitous one, having started with a career in Biotech before moving into a world where she could help bring families together for their most important celebrations. For Kim, nothing is more thrilling than wrangling 300 guests in the unpredictable Texas weather. She loves hiking with Whit and their two dogs, white water rafting and fly fishing with her family, and traveling the world. She and her sons love the movies and have been known to dabble in karaoke shows too.

One of her best-kept secrets is her ability to spot a good bargain. She buys all of her designer clothes on eBay because she loves buying second-hand.
