Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) says that Hall brings maritime and piracy analytic experience to the association.

For the past three and a half years, Hall was Senior Analyst with the Homeland Security Studies and Analysis Institute (HSSAI), supporting DHS S&T, USCG Headquarters, USCG Atlantic Area, and the National Strike Force Coordination Center.

CLIA adds that Hall specializes in maritime security. Prior to HSSAI, she was a research analyst in the Center for Naval Analyses' (CNA) Strategic Initiatives Group focusing on threats and issues pertaining to the global commons.  While at CNA, she was the CNA field representative to U.S. Naval Forces Central Command (NAVCENT), U.S. Fifth Fleet, and the Combined Maritime Forces in Manama, Bahrain, where she was the senior counter-piracy advisor. 

Hall's research experience includes coastal nation politics and foreign policy, maritime policy (national and international), and U.S. Navy/ Coast Guard operations and international outreach.

Hall received her BA in political science and communications, law, economics, and government (CLEG) from American University and an MPhil in international relations from the University of Cambridge (UK).

Bud Darr, Senior Vice President of Technical and Regulatory Affairs, also said, "We are thrilled to have someone of Kim's caliber join our organization and look forward to her contributions in the areas of operations and security."
