About Me


/about/headshot.jpeg

Hi, my name is Phoebe Kim, and I am a Senior Cloud Solutions Architect at VMware based in Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.

As a Senior Cloud Solutions Architect in the Multi-Cloud Center of Excellence at VMware, I help customers achieve workload mobility across multiple clouds by providing multi-cloud reference architectures and migration guidance. Previously, I worked in technology consulting, where I was responsible for managing projects and leading teams of engineers. I have three VCDX certifications (network virtualization, data center virtualization, and cloud management and automation) in addition to various technical certifications from AWS and Cisco.

When I’m not keeping busy with work or learning new technologies, I enjoy creating models for 3D printing and playing violin and piano at various events around the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
