“Although I have seen a number of New Hampshire’s covered bridges I never thought about how they were built. Kim’s presentation introduced the audience to the designers of these amazing structures and their engineering techniques which was fascinating.”

Terry K., New Hampshire Historical Society Program, March 2023

“Kim was delightfully engaging and knew her topic well. Her presentation was spot on in every way with timing, humor and information. Super job!”

“How everyone interacted, questions just bounced from one to another and answers were fulfilled… she was brilliant and so engaging.”

Bernie P., Bath Public Library Program, March 2023

“Kim not only knew her subject and answered loads of questions off the cuff, she was funny and entertaining to listen to. She is obviously enthusiastic about covered bridges and it shows.
It was particularly neat hearing about the bridges in our town and surrounding areas, which no longer exist and are not in the book. Kim took the time to personalize her talk just for us!”

-Karen B., Amherst Town Library Program, December 2022

“Before the program I only knew that I liked the look of covered bridges. I now understand what a covered bridge really is and their different structures and looks.”

Sally K., Granite State Ambassadors Program, March 2023

“Not knowing much about the past history of the covered bridges of Rochester area, I was learning new information the whole time. I believe you had the rest of the audience very interested also.”

– Steve B., Rochester Public LIbrary Program, December 2022

“There were covered bridges… in the area where I have lived my entire life and had no idea. The photos and provided history of these bridges was fascinating to me! I have found myself searching out some of the bridges (or in some cases the spot where the bridges once stood) during my travels.”

Julie T., Hancock Town Library Program, December 2022

“Her visuals were very good. Her presentation skills are extremely strong: enthusiastic, personable, knowledgeable, prepared, good sense of humor, very down to earth and didn’t talk down to her audience. Open to ideas and audience participation. Her whole presentation and approach were excellent.”

Laurie J., Fox Forest Program, March 2023

“The historical content was detailed and interesting.  I learned about many covered bridges in Campton that I did not know had ever existed.  Kim’s talk was delivered with humor and unusual facts that brought the history of the community to life.”
