Today you are you! That is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you! - Dr. Seuss
The Official Bio
Kim has been professionally involved in the self-development industry since 1996, studying with and working for, the best-known professionals in the industry. During this time, she has had the good fortune to coach thousands of people, however, she still considers the daily work she does on herself to be the most challenging work. One of her core tenets is to always have the internal fortitude and grit to do the level of work she expects from her clients. Because of this, she stuck to her creative dreams and is the proud author of multiple books, including: Nail It In 90, Distinctly You, The Things In Your Head, Who Would You Be and Today I Decided.
Throughout her life, Kim has owned various businesses, from an advertising and commercial photography agency to an ice cream shop. Even at an early age she was involved in all of her father’s businesses. Her experience in business has always shaped her coaching from an entrepreneurial perspective. Currently, she owns a business that supports speakers, trainers and authors with building their brands and intellectual product development.
In Kim’s private life she loves gardening, farming and growing anything organic. She has a Master Gardeners Certification from the University of Rhode Island. Kim also has a burning need to know anything and everything about mindfulness. She has spent the last five years or so studying mindfulness so that she could enhance the consciousness of her life.
Most recently, she and her husband decided to change their lives dramatically by moving their entire clan from Rhode Island to South Carolina. After coming to the conclusion that they just didn’t love the quality of life they were living, they did something about it. They now have discovered their version of nirvana; the outdoor life in South Carolina.
A Note from Kim - "My life is always a work in progress. No matter the goals I have, it’s always about progress for me. Every step in my journey teaches me invaluable lessons. Even becoming a coach was not cut and dry. One choice led to another, to another, and before I knew it, I was using my skills as a professional coach. My path became clear, I discovered my purpose.
I have been professionally involved in the self-development industry since 1996, studying with, and working for, the best-known professionals in the industry. During this time, I have had the good fortune to coach thousands of people, however, I still consider the daily work I do on myself to be the most challenging work. One of my core tenets is to always have the internal fortitude and grit to do the level of work I expect from my clients. I would never want my clients to have that Wizard of Oz moment, pulling back the curtain and realizing their coach is all talk and no action!
I grew up in an entrepreneurial family, and I have owned various businesses; from an advertising and marketing company, to a commercial photography agency to an ice cream shop. My father expected a lot from me, he supported and trained me. At an early age, he taught me through his many businesses, expecting me to start and learn from the bottom and gave me more responsibility through my own merit. My experience in business has always shaped my coaching from an entrepreneurial perspective.
For nearly two decades, I have been a passionate student of human behavior and psychology, studying in detail anything that I felt would add depth to my foundation and coaching skills.
On a personal note, I have a deep passion for gardening, farming and growing anything organic. I love to play in the dirt, seriously, I love dirt. Getting my Master Gardeners Certification from the University of Rhode Island was a huge thrill for me. Right now, all of my personal studies are currently focused on knowing anything and everything about mindfulness, learning to live moment to moment, being conscious and being present.
Currently, I am LOVING my new life living in South Carolina with my husband, two children, two dogs and cat. Now I just have to learn to stop loving cheese grits so much!"
