“Life throws lots of challenges at us that get in the way of living the life we were created for. I want to help people deal with the challenges, so they can live the life they desire.”

Hobbies: I’m either working, doing things with my family, volunteering at church, or helping friends. Sometimes I squeeze in photography or sleeping!

After being an honorary member of my graduate school co-hort 20 year ago, Kim will receive her own MA in Marriage and Family Therapy September 2019. We have now been married more than 25 years and have two teenage daughters.
