KIM SCHROEDER

PROJECT MANAGER

Kim’s design career started at the age of 8 when she unknowingly drew her first floorplan.  With her marker set, she sketched out the home she told her parents she would one day live in.  Kim joined the Earth and Images team in October of 2015 and quickly fell into step with the firm. A native of Colorado, Kim came to Phoenix in April of 2007 on a whim with zero intention to make it her permanent residence.  After three months, she realized Arizona was where she belonged, so she enrolled in school to pursue her passion for design.  Kim attended the 2-n-2 program through Mesa Community College and Northern Arizona, and in 2010 received her Interior Design degree with an emphasis in Residential Design, AutoCAD and Interior Merchandising. Her heart lies in enriching lives through spaces that while beautiful are also functional and practical - that are a true reflection of who people are and what image they want to portray to the world.
