Kym Allen is a San Bernardino native and grew up actively involved in Community Theater. She exchanged the sweltering heat of the desert with cool ocean breezes in the fall of 2006 when she attended Loyola Marymount University. She spent her four years pursuing a degree in Communication Studies and volunteering with the all-female organization, Gryphons Circle.
Her love of service and travel brought her all over the world during her undergrad years, including Spain and Guatemala, and upon her graduation she traveled down “to the edge of the world” to continue serving in Chile. Among learning a new language and a new culture, Kym also taught English, cultural workshops, and physical education to various rural elementary schools in Talca, Chile. She was able to backpack all across South America including Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, and Uruguay, before returning to the US in 2012 to serve two years hard time in the corporate world as a Manager of Marketing and
Communication. In February 2014, Kym left the corporate world behind to pursue acting.
SOFT TIMES is her first short film under the direction of Ashunda Norris!
