Kihm. The "h" is silent. The Kihm name comes from Switzerland. My mother is Italian. I was born and raised in Middletown, Pennsylvania and most of my family still live there.
Why I chose to be a Podiatrist. I broke my ankle playing soccer in high school. The experience, as a patient, allowed me to see the impact doctors in this profession can have. At 16 years old I made this my goal.
My Path. Bachelors of Science @ Juniata College (Huntingdon, PA) --> Doctorate of Podiatric Medicine @ Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine (Philadelphia, PA) --> Residency @ DeKalb Medical Center (Decatur, GA) --> Private Practice with Village Podiatry (Canton and Marietta, GA) --> Private Practice with University Foot & Ankle (Louisville, KY); Attending Surgeon at Norton Audubon's Kentucky Podiatric Medicine Residency Program.
Balance. Outside of work, I enjoy staying fit and being active. I'm a Pittsburgh Steelers fanatic. I also enjoy traveling, red wine, photography, live music and stand-up comedy. I genuinely care for my patients and love what I do.
