About Kim

I am an early retiree at age 57 from the public school system. I opted for early retirement so I could care for my aging parents. I taught at the same high school for seven years in subject areas such as Psychology, Sociology, Peer Counseling, and Social Studies grades 7-12. I was a Guidance Counselor for six years at the same school until we grew out of our campus. So I then had the honor of serving on the steering committee to break ground for a new high school. Opening and planning for a new high school was a career dream. I was director of the Guidance Department until departure date.

I am a true believer in the global classroom. I have taken five European tours with my students enjoying all the sights and new experiences together. We have an open invitation to Sigmund Freud's home in London anytime.

The early years of my career were devoted to Mental Health services. I worked with chronic psychiatric patients in a hospital setting. I also was a counselor at Daniel Memorial for at risk teens. I am also a certified Biofeedback Therapist and Relaxation/Hypnosis therapist. I love people and the light bulb effect.

Please contact for any further assistance or concerns.
