Born and raised in her family's business in Hinsdale, Kim is the youngest of the third generation at Vern Goers Greenhouse. After graduating from Purdue, she returned to Hinsdale to do her part at the family business. Kim is now the head of marketing for Vern Goers Greenhouse, where she manages their website, blog and social media outlets, as well as planning all of their events and classes.
Kim is also a board of director for the Hinsdale Chamber of Commerce and a co-chair of their marketing committee.
The Goers’ family has been in the greenhouse business for four generations, with Vern growing up and working at his father's greenhouse in LaGrange. He eventually went on to start a business of his own and purchased a small greenhouse in Hinsdale, IL. The property consisted of a house and three glass greenhouses that were originally built in 1919. More greenhouses have been added around the original three, since the Goers Family took over in 1966. Vern's son Phillip Goers, is the current owner with lots of help managing it from his wife Karen, and children Christian, Sarah and Kim.
The family has been growing a full line of bedding plants, vegetables, mums and poinsettias for over 45 years.
