Apart from making a livelihood in 2022 by featuring in '90 Day Fiancé' with her partner Usman "Sojaboy" Umar, Kim Menzies has a great new full-time job. Kim Menzies, star of the '90 Day Fiancé' franchise, has disclosed a surprising new job in San Diego. Before making her franchise debut, Kim, 50, DM'd Usman "Sojaboy" Umar, 32, on Twitter after becoming an admirer of his music. Sadly for Kim, Usman only viewed her as a fan and not as his girlfriend, as she desired. In '90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days,' Kim traveled to Tanzania for the first time to meet Usman.

Usman took a long time to agree to Kim's requests, but even then, he had stipulations before making her his wife. Usman wants to remarry a younger woman who would bear him a child, but his family is opposed to him marrying Kim, who is comparable to his ex-wife Lisa Hamme.

What does Kim do for a living?

Kim considers convincing Usman's family to let him marry her the most nerve-racking event of her life, aside from fighting in Operation Desert Storm. Fans are aware that Kim previously worked as a military lady, but as of 2022, her latest position is more relaxed. Kimberly worked in the restaurant and hospitality industries for more than ten years before capturing her international romance.

Before her reality TV debut, the TLC alum worked as a service manager at Mimi's Cafe in San Diego, California, according to her LinkedIn page, and she was supposedly still employed there until October 2022. Kim's post with the wonderful news is accompanied by a graphic prepared by her employer greeting her. It mentions Kim's desire to make people happy. Giving back to the community makes Kim happy; in her spare time, she enjoys strolling on the beach, reading, and watching reality television. Kim intends to learn to play golf next year, with the objective of "maintain a good lifestyle for myself and to travel."
