Growing up, Kim Bentley came from a working class family, and personally faced the hardships many small town Americans are familiar with. The son of two Air Force veterans, Kim learned the importance of sacrifice and making tough, but correct, decisions when his parents moved their family from his birthplace in Binghamton, New York, to Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado. Like a lot of people, Kim has faced obstacles in his life, however, each obstacle has only served to bolster his determination, tenacity, and willpower. Kim worked three jobs while finishing his high school education, graduating a semester early and with honors.
A Hampton Roads resident since 2010, Kim works as a Systems Analyst for a Fortune 50 healthcare company, where he specializes in solving complex problems by analyzing large datasets to identify anomalies and errors that save the company millions of dollars and hundreds of man hours. At the same time, Kim is currently pursuing a dual-major in Mechanical Engineering and Physics, with a minor in History from Tidewater Community College. Kim wants to take what he has learned in his personal and professional life to serving in a position of public service for his community. As Treasurer, he will bring integrity and independent thoughtfulness to city government, working with local leaders to guide Virginia Beach to a more secure financial future.
Kim lives with his wife Jocelyn in the Green Run neighborhood of Virginia Beach. In his spare time, Kim enjoys working with his hands – from repairing computers for neighbors to do-it-yourself auto repair, and keeping his yard and home neatly trimmed as a point of taking pride in his community.
