"I heard Kim present at a women’s network lunch program and was drawn by her ideas and boundless energy. I was interested in learning more about Kim and her work, and in particular her Empowered Living Program. Not long after, we met so I could learn more."
"I knew I wanted Kim as my coach, and I signed up for her Empowered Living Program."
"Kim’s steady coaching helped guide me through a challenging time over several months. She provided an invaluable service, giving me new perspectives and keeping me on track. I benefited from her attention to detail; clear, positive approach and active listening throughout our coaching sessions. "
"Kim gave me new tools and resources, helping me to better organize and make time for what is important. She asked challenging questions that led me to prioritize in a meaningful way. During our work together, I set and accomplished numerous objectives that are important to me. Now, though I’ve completed Kim’s powerful coaching program, her wise counsel stays with me as I continue working on my path forward."
KIm's knowledge is so impressive. No matter the issue whether it be digestive health, blood sugar related or for cancer treatment, she is always willing to help and full of information.
She also has provided additional resources for digging further. She is my go to for health related questions aside from my doctor.
No to mention she is a super fun, kind and caring person who has a calming presence about her. She is easy to talk to. Highly recommend her!
Before I started working with Kim, I was completely out of control.
I was way overcommitted and found myself binge eating at any opportunity. I've slowed down, found my new balance. I learned what foods may fuel my energy level. I've become aware of making decisions that won't take away from family time. I've made time for myself. I feel great!
I realized that eating certain foods can make me feel better than others. By choosing to eat the right foods, I can actually focus more and be more productive. My balance has organized it self both because I can be more efficient and because I'm making better decisions as to what I want to do versus what I need to do.
What were you struggling before you started my program? I just been diagnosed with Diabetes. I have struggled all my life with my weight and I knew I was at a high risk of becoming diabetic. The diagnosis was very emotional for me. But at that moment I also knew that I had do educate myself about the disease and work towards being well again.
What has improved or changed for you? First my A1C went down from 7.4 to 6.6. This is where my doctor wants me to be, below 7. This is without medication and using diet only to control my blood sugars. A really big change that was unexpected, as I was pretty much resigned to the fact I would struggle with sleep issues for the rest of my life, I no longer struggle to fall asleep. Once I go to bed, I am asleep in less than 30 minutes and I sleep soundly through the night. Prior to doing the wellness challenge, I may have resorted to some form of melatonin in order to get some sleep. I love that I get to sleep like I did when I was much younger. I also did lose 5.5 lbs. I lost more weight by focusing on what I needed to do to be well for my diabetes than I did when I was focusing exclusively on losing the weight.
What breakthroughs did you experience? Learning to say no to others has always been difficult for me. I learned new ways to set up my boundaries and cope when I run into situations that push those boundaries. I needed to come to understand that those boundaries are necessary for my wellbeing and happiness. If I say yes to everyone, there won’t be any time left to say yes to myself. If I don’t take time for myself, then eventually I won’t have any of me left to give.
How do you feel now? I feel empowered and more knowledgeable.
What was most helpful about my program for you? How supportive you are and how it was really all about me. The program for me was about where I was at the time and what I wanted to focus on. I also came to understand that my health and wellness isn’t just a medical condition, it’s all the things in my life.
Who do you think would most benefit from this program? A person wanting and willing to do what’s necessary to improve their life and health.
"To be honest, when I started working with Kim, I wasn’t sure what I was struggling with. I felt that I had things pretty well under control and figured out, but I knew I could use a little help.
Kim’s natural and genuine personality enabled me to open up, to ask deeper questions, and to comfortably reflect on things that could have been difficult. Her nonjudgmental and supportive demeanor, helped me to let go of underlying thoughts that unconsciously played into my day-to-day life. I left every phone call feeling lighter, happier, and more confident in myself.
My favorite part of my work with Kim is that it felt like talking to an old friend, who supported you and cared for you no matter what. Making the decision to start this program would benefit anyone who is hoping to change their outlook and view themselves as their true self: confident, capable, and awesome."
"I met Kim as part of my IAWP Wellness 360 training program. She become my coach and that experience was most helpful. Each call we unraveled a new piece to a wellness struggle.
My overall goal was to reduce sugar consumption and acidity levels mainly to live a less inflammatory lifestyle. I am a breast cancer survivor and want to do as many things as possible to live a long clean, healthy life. Kim was able to ask the questions that probed me to dig deeper into the historical reasons that I reach for sugary foods and offer a myriad of different strategies to alter behaviour.
In addition, she provided me with new information about reducing inflammation, such as ginger baths and Bromelain. I was able to make some connections about why I use food to support me and learn to celebrate and respect the many healthy lifestyle choices that I already have in place.
Kim is a compassionate and knowledgeable coach who has a range of strategies on hand. She takes you from where you are, in manageable steps, towards reaching your goal. I was most impressed with her ability to respectfully ask thought provoking questions that helped empower me to take the responsibility for my own health choices. She was ready with some suggestions and insight once the awakening occurred. I am grateful for Kim's coaching."
"I struggled with fatigue, soreness, hotflashes, inability to lose weight.
I have gained more energy & stamina, I'm not as sore, or if I get sore I recover quicker. The hotflashes are much less frequent and less severe.
The breakthroughs were having Kim find the right foods and a couple supplements that would work specifically for me. She took the time to read labels for me and found out that I had been using a protein powder that actually had mushroom powder in it, and guess what...I'm allergic to mushrooms...I never would have thought to look for that in the ingredients!
I feel great now that I have more energy and know what things work and what doesn't for my specific needs and body type!
I think the biggest benefit was having someone take the time to really listen to me and find out what would work and what wouldn't work...not just a one-size-fits-all program.
I feel like the program could work for anyone who is either struggling with making healthy choices, or even the super healthy-conscious people who just need some fine-tuning."
Kim was my mentor while I was attending Coach Academy for my Master Coach certification. We had regular sessions on a monthly basis that I enjoyed and benefited from tremendously.
With her excellent coaching skills and vast resourcefulness, she supported me tactfully on my various mindset, relationship and inner work issues that I was struggling with. This helped me to navigate in turbulent waters, see clear, stay strong and positive.
Thanks to our sessions, I now feel much more confident in those areas that I was challenged before. It was most helpful for me knowing there was a heart-centered professional that would offer me all eyes and ears to guide me through my problems.
I strongly recommend Kim to everyone in search of an outstanding Wellness Coach.
Kim has been an amazing guide on my wellness journey. Her guidance has allowed me to grow in many areas of my life, from health to finding balance and the importance of allowing time for myself.
Kim has been a great inspiration and part of the reason I'm now a board certified wellness coach also.
"Before working with Kim, I was having relationship issues. My wife and I are communicating better, connecting and understanding each other more now as well as having a deeper understanding of my self.
I feel a lot better and encourage anyone who is open to making a difference in their lives to work with Kim."
"Kim is such a great person, and has lots of energy! She helped me in the past when I first came to town, and believe she can help you too!"
"Time management and not having enough time to juggle everything on my plate, was the challenge that I came to Kim with. After working with Kim I’ve been able to structure my tasks better by using time blocks. I was putting a lot of pressure on myself now and it effected my stress and mood. I feel more organized and less stressed now!
Having someone listen to my struggles and help guide me to making positive changes made all the difference in my life as a wife, business owner and mom of a toddler!
Women with demanding careers and business owners would truly benefit from Kim's Empowered Living for Superwoman Program".
" I was struggling with relocation, my diet, and acceptance by my family on my new look and success in weight. Everything has improved. I was able to settle down in my new home, improve my diet and was able to get my husband and daughter to embrace a new healthy lifestyle.
Breakthroughs in my routine, exercise, and my studies, especially in my Niche. I am so empowered to go on. I feel relieved and can now focus on the major. It was so easy talking to Kim. She taught me to celebrate little accomplishments along my journey, and she magnified my little success along the way. Kim listened so I could express myself without feeling judged.
Every woman who struggles with anything, feels insecure and needs to feel good about themselves should work with Kim."
"Kim is incredibly knowledgeable in her field. She creates an accepting 'space' to learn new habits and transform lives".
