About

Hi there! I’m Kim, an MD-turned-coach and business mentor to wellness entrepreneurs.

Enneagram 3, type A as they come... I live for good coffee, am always planning my next trip to Paris, and happen to believe that pop music was perfected in the 80s.

ONCE UPON A TIME

I was a family doctor who had pursued a calling to make the world a healthier place and create a successful career for myself. It felt like I had achieved everything I'd ever wanted. Until it... didn't anymore.

I was thoroughly burned out. I was disillusioned with the healthcare system, frustrated and limited by conventional medicine, and — as a mom of two young boys — my priorities had shifted, big-time. I longed for a career that gave me professional fulfillment and personal freedom.

People said I was crazy to walk away from medicine. Colleagues didn’t understand what I was talking about, and friends were concerned and worried for me. 

I felt lost, miserable, and trapped.

It was time for a change.

Then I finally found my purpose in the world of wellness coaching.  

Once I discovered the incredible world of health & wellness coaching, I felt like I could breathe for the first time.

I pivoted to coaching and quickly became obsessed. I learned everything I could — not just about coaching but also about business, marketing, and entrepreneurship. Then, after building a successful career for myself as a coach, I pivoted again.

I now help other women to become wellness coaches and build their businesses through my business mentorship programs. 

Basically, I’m on a mission to do whatever I can to help other women pursue an amazing career where they have freedom, fulfillment, and financial independence ... all while making the world a healthier place.

Want to join me on this incredible ride?

An average Tuesday these days: walk my kids to school, go for a run by the ocean, settle in to my home office to do the work that absolutely lights me up.
