Kim Rounds: Marketing and Sales

While showing, Kim also worked as a groom for her trainer and international show jumper, Sarah Ballou. Outside of the show ring, Kim's family owns and runs a cow-calf operation where she learned to work cattle, rope, and start colts, all from the back of a horse.

While at CSU, she served as a teaching assistant for the horse training courses and worked with the Legends of Ranching Performance Horse Sale for multiple years. Within CSU, Kim also was a member of the Seedstock Merchandising Team where she experienced marketing livestock, both private treaty and through the team's annual bull sale. She was also a member of the school's Versatility Ranch Horse Team, where she traveled and showed. Kim prides herself on her diverse background in the industry and her attention to detail whether in daily maintenance or turning horses out for the show ring. Kim currently resides in Fort Collins and works as the head of marketing and sales for Shining KL Partners.
