A 1998 graduate of Adamsville High School, Kim attended Jackson State Community College on a softball scholarship, graduating magna cum laude with an Associate of Science degree in May 2000. Kim completed her undergraduate work at U.T. Martin, graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice in December 2002. While at Martin, Kim was the President of the Criminal Justice Society and Vice-President of Lambda Alpha Epsilon Criminal Justice Honors Fraternity. She interned with the Martin Police Department her senior year, cementing her desire to become a police officer. Upon graduation, Kim began working as a dispatcher for McNairy County E911. In November 2003, she became the first female officer with the Selmer, Tennessee police department. Kim loved being a police officer close to her hometown, and her experience with the police department assured her that she wanted to continue to advance her career in law enforcement. In 2005, Kim became a Special Agent with the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission in Chattanooga. In October of 2007, Kim married Johnny Boleyn, and they welcomed their first son, Jayden, in 2010. Adjusting to becoming a full time working mother was difficult, yet so rewarding. In 2013, Kim and Johnny welcomed their daughter, Kaylee, while Kim continued to excel in her career, being promoted to Assistant Special Agent in Charge. Currently, Kim serves as the Interim Special Agent in Charge for Chattanooga, and continues to look forward to what the future holds. Kim owes a great deal of thanks to the professors of the Criminal Justice program at U.T. Martin for investing their time in her, and believing that she could achieve anything.
