Kim Best, a journalist for 25 years, earned a Certificate in Documentary Arts from Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies in 2010. She is a deadline-driven professional with abundant experience researching story ideas, finding people who say things well, interviewing them, then using her own and their own best words to educate or entertain readers.
Over the years, she has become a rigorous, sometimes ruthless, editor. She has conceptualized large projects (quarterly journals, educational videos) and worked collaboratively. She has traveled extensively, and continues to find stories to tell wherever she goes.
