Locally she serves on the board for C.A.M.P, Cincinnati Architecture Mentoring Program, whose origins are the first Project Pipeline camp in the country.

King is a Volunteer by birth as a Tennessee native where she received her Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Tennessee. This passion for serving the community has involved her in the spectrum of organizing to include advocacy for mothers, food justice, and in recent years Design Justice.
