Meet Kimberly: Artist. Coach. Explorer. Teacher. Mom.
I’ve lived a somewhat unconventional life. Someone once told me that this song was written for me. I’ve traveled from Mexico to Bolivia with a few exceptions. Salsa dancing is my favorite hobby. People call me compassionate, loving, intuitive, and wise. You can see my CV here. Read my official bio here.
Moved to the Bay Area of California, where I enjoy making music, doing yoga, and walking on the beach.
Took my 8th grade son on a year long sabbatical to Latin America, where I could be found coaching from the deck of a sailboat floating in the Caribbean.
Realized that people were asking me for coaching, so I launched my coaching practice.
Living and traveling as an artist, bringing my work to juried art shows throughout the upper Midwest.
Went on walkabout in the Colombian Andes, meeting gypsies, thieves, and shamans.
Sent to the rainforest of Central America, where I lived in a small house with no electricity and only cold running water an hour and a half walk from the nearest bus stop. Gathered a team and produced the curriculum for training teachers nationwide. Started meditating.
After graduation from college, traveled solo across the country by train to Southeast Alaska where I spent the summer. Worked in a fish hatchery and nearly drowned in a rafting accident.
Carved out the first program in Environmental Education at the U of MN. Was the co-chair of MPRIG and was involved in the outdoor leadership program. Spent time rock climbing and kayaking.
Went to Purdue for two years of college. Discovered sociology and marched on Washington.
Before age 18, was an oboist with the Youth Symphony, page to the Minnesota State Senate, and regional math team competitor graduating near the top of the class.
Born in Minnesota. Immediately set out to greet everyone in the room.
