About Kim & Richard

Richard - Born in Washington D.C. to Swiss parents, Richard returned to Switzerland when he was 16. Richard trained as a chef in Lausanne, Switzerland and worked as a chef there for 20 years before returning to the U.S.A. to become the executive chef for Prom Management Group (which cater major golf events such as The U.S. Open, PGA Tour, LPGA Tour and Champions tour).

Kim - Born in Devon, England traveled extensively before finally settling in the U.S.A. Kim became a Hospitality Service Manager coordinating the on-site corporate hospitality venues at major golf events all over the U.S.A.

While employed at Prom Management Group, Richard and Kim met and married. After years on the road with Prom Management Group, they decided to settle down with their own business after googling "small resort for sale" and found Whispering Woods. While working an event in Lexington, KY, they drove to view the property with no real intention of buying since they had never visited Arkansas before.

During their visit, they liked the property, but could they really tell everyone they knew that they were upping stakes and moving to Arkansas?

The answer was yes, so Whispering Woods became theirs! Selling their Minnesota home, they quit their jobs and moved to Arkansas June 29th, 2015 just in time for the busy 4th of July weekend. Cooper (pictured with Kim and Richard) joined their family soon after.
