Canella Kim (born 1977) is a minor character in Tales from the Tuckerverse and a supporting one in The IT Files. Canella was chief of staff to Patricia Mero, backing her up when she wanted to stay as CEO for Stone Enterprises. After Erika Stone got her fired she moved to Texas, becoming the director of personel for Triangle Security Services with Darcy Keibler as her chief of staff. Later Canella returned to work for Patricia as Stheno of the Gorgon Sisterhood.
Canella was born in Toronto, Canada, the daughter of an American businessman who hailed from Texas and a South Korean immigrant that worked at a video store. While a child Canella's father helped her get dual-citizenship, hoping she could use it in the future to better serve the business community as an adult. Sure enough after graduating from high school Canella was able to use her citizenship to easily study in both Canada and the United States, specifically McGill and Notre Dame, earning a Master of Business Administration degree. At her father's prompting Canella continued to take advantage of her dual-citizenship status, looking for a job that would require a lot of travel and ending up with Stone Travel of Stone Enterprises.
Canella's first big break with Stone Travel was when she was made personal assistant to Patricia Mero, the two becoming good friends. Patricia herself was a rising star and by the time she was made head of Stone Travel Canella became her chief of staff, recommending Darcy Keibler as her replacement as Patricia's PA. After the death of Eric Stone Patricia was made the interim CEO of Stone Enterprises, at least until Erika Stone could graduate from university, but Canella plotted with Erika and Darcy to keep the CEO position permanently. The ploy failed under mysterious circumstances, the trio forced to resign and split up. Patricia ended up with the Stilton Corporation while Canella brought Darcy with her to Triangle Security Services, starting as director of personnel in Fort Worth, Texas. During this period Canella began a relationship with security consultant new hire Brent Harrison. By 2009 Canella had moved up the ladder to become director of human resources at Triangle's main facility in Houston.
After the fall of Richard Stilton Patricia became the CEO of the Stilton Corporation and bought out Triangle. Canella was made Vice-President of the Corporation and also joined the Gorgon Sisterhood, taking the name Stheno.
