Holistic Personal Growth Mentor
Hi, I'm Kimberly!
You’re in the middle of change, and stakes are high. Game on!
It’s great we’re meeting, because I specialize in supporting leaders through times of change. I’ve done this work for more than 25 years.
Periods of growth can be activated by crisis or by curiosity. Either way, my role is to facilitate the personal growth and self-actualization that are available to you at this time.
It’s easy to go to the extreme of focusing on work and success. However, if you do that you’ll lose touch with who you are and what you really want — and you need both to emerge at a higher level on the other side.
Like any coach, I motivate, inspire, design challenges, encourage, and foster greatness in my clients. But among coaches, because of my training and experience, I’m unusually perceptive. My coaching style is based on evidence-based science along with the deep presence that comes from 25 years of mindfulness practice. Even if you’ve worked with many coaches and haven’t yet found someone who helped you produce the results you want, I assure you that I can help.
There are fewer than 450 Master Certified Coaches in the United States. I’m one of them. Many of my clients are or have been top performers at the biggest companies in the world.
If you’re looking for the best, you’re in the right place.
The Master Coach Credential is an honor given to only 4% of ICF coaches – roughly the top 1% of coaches in the world. I’ve been doing this work a long time. I’m told that my clients appreciate my compassion, integrity, and no-BS approach.
My client list includes people from every corner of the diversity map. You can count on me for expertise in the field; I maintain deep, strategic knowledge of the current coaching landscape and am recognized as an authority and thought leader. See my training and credentials here.
World Traveler, Artist, Musician, & Intuitive
With more than 25 years of experience, I'm an expert in unlocking human potential.
Growing up in Minnesota, I didn’t have any idea what my genius was or that I should be looking for it. I was coasting, vaguely dissatisfied, and not even asking myself the right questions.
After I graduated from college, I joined the Peace Corps. For two years, I lived in the rainforest with no electricity and only cold running water. No Internet. Six weeks between a letter home and a return letter. Lots of time to listen.
In addition to gathering a team and producing the curriculum for training teachers nationwide, I learned how to salsa and started to practice mindfulness and meditation. I also started traveling to spend time with the tribes deep in the rainforest. On one of those trips I had a vision and an epiphany about who I was — and who I could become.
The rainforest was more than just where I learned to meditate. It revealed my genius and put me on the path to becoming a coach.
Innovation & Flow State Catalyst
You don't have to go to the rainforest to find change.
I’ve lived a somewhat unconventional life. I’ve been a nomadic artist living in the Andes, nearly died in a rafting accident in the wilderness of Alaska, and walked to the hospital when I was in labor. I raised my son single-handedly and took him on a year-long walkabout in Central America when he was a teenager. I once moved across the country to a town I’d never visited and where I knew no one. 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. Someone once told me that this song was written for me.
It hasn’t been boring.
This island picture was taken during “Wishbone Year”, my year-long sabbatical with my (then) 14 year old son. I spent that year coaching from the deck of a sailboat in the Caribbean and from my porch overlooking the Costa Rican rainforest. (It was his story about that trip that got him into college.)
But if there’s anything I’ve learned from all my travels, it’s that you don’t have to go anywhere to experience transformation. When you’re ready to grow and develop, change will start happening even if you’re sitting on your couch.
