In July of 2014 Kim retired as a hairstylist where she owned and operated a salon for nearly 20 years. She practiced and continues to practice Massage Therapy, Reiki, Integrative Nutritional Health Coaching, and is Certified as an AromaTouch Technique Practitioner. Kim is a member of the Association of Drugless Practitioners, Association of Bodywork and Massage Professionals, and is a Provider with Bulldozer Health Organization a non profit. While at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in NY she received the Health Leadership Award and earned back her entire tuition.
Kim’s boys were both born with disabilities ranging from ADHD, learning and physical disabilities, she found herself struggling to give her son, then, seven years old, Ritalin. Becoming aware through resources and reading, she found that there were correlations with foods that he ate and behaviors he displayed. As she learned more about what affected him, she became aware of her own diet and how foods affected her and her wellness.
For years she had discomfort with stomach pain, joint pain, fatigue, digestive issues and weight creating skin breakouts. This made her realize that she was far too young to have all of these issues and was leading to a disease within her body. She knew she was headed to the same conditions that was part of her family history (Crohn’s Colitis, IBS…etc). She needed to do something! It always came back to food choices.
Through curiosity, she continued to acquire more knowledge in the field of nutrition. Her training at IIN allowed her to train in more than one hundred dietary theories and study a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. This then allowed her to help her clients create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits their unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
It is her belief that it IS possible to cure, or improve one’s health from a disease that has been deemed “incurable’. All things are interconnected and so are we. Getting to the root cause of your symptoms or disease is her goal in helping you “get back your health”.
Kim specializes in ADHD, Auto-Immune and Digestive Disorders, Allergies, and Food Sensitivities. She supports individuals in a number of ways including: one-on-one’s, in groups, at workshops, at retreats, detox programs, shopping tours, essential oil classes, and cooking classes. She has partnered with Gaunya Chiropractic and Wellness Center, Barstow Bodywork, Bulldozer Health, S.O.S for Women’s Health, and she’s appeared on the Ashland Cable Access Channel with Missy Cohen~ New Beginnings to Health, and has taught classes at various locations on essential oils including Harrington Hospital, Just Breath Salt Therapy, Revitalize Massage and Yoga, Amethyst Brook Wellness, and more. Most importantly she has a successful business with doTERRA Essential Oils to spread the word on “Bringing wellness into the homes of thousands, and teaching others how to become successful too with doTERRA.”
