About

Hi, I’m Kim.

I’m a Career Counselor and Business Consultant on hiatus for the next year or two while I become a licensed therapist. I love helping people and organizations create healthy relationships with work, and am maintaining my website to keep the door open for interesting side projects.

Feel free to get in touch if you want to talk about Career and Organizational Development, as I’m available for speaking and training gigs, and an incredibly limited number of individual clients.

Community & Personal

  • Serve as Volunteer Coordinator for San Diego’s 3,500 person, 4-day Regional Burn, YOUtopia, which leverages a 400+ person volunteer pool across 20+ departments.
  • Recently piloted a Consent & Bystander Intervention Training Program under the auspices of SDCAP and in collaboration with Center for Community Solutions, an amazing local non-profit whose mission is to end relationship and sexual violence. The training program is designed to promote a culture of affirmative consent via education and prevention.
  • Organize Burning Man Theme Camps of up to 50 people, offering all manner of interactive arts and events.
  • After speaking at Ignite San Diego in 2015, got involved as a speaker coach and organizer for the event.
