GET HEARD. GET HIRED.”
Abiding by the philosophy of “Skills for life vs. Job for life”, Kim is on a mission to change the way people view their careers. She firmly believes that “No Job is Permanent”, and in recognizing this, she is able to help her clients take control of their careers by arming them with industry secrets and the tools they need to mange their career search (or career change). Through various virtual and live development experiences such as “Do what you love”, “Accelerate Your Career” and “6 seconds to 6 figures”, Kim motivates her clients to accomplish both their personal and professional goals – all while obtaining the courage they need to easily transcend beyond their ‘job’ and into a position of influence!!

Need even more reasons to work with Kim? How about the fact that she’s been featured on Fox 5, CBS News and News Channel 8 in the Washington, DC, area? For many years, she’s also been the hiring powerhouse behind The Washington Post, Comcast Corporation, ICF International and several federal agencies throughout the United States.
When she’s not helping her clients pursue the career of their dreams or sharing her secrets to personal and professional success via television and radio, Kim spends most of her time enjoying music and the arts, and being a mom to her two beautiful children. Speaking of her kids, she’s obsessed with her son’s budding sports career and spends the majority of the year cheering him on at his MANY games. She’s definitely what you would call a sports fanatic.
