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.
