Hi, I'm Kimberly. Pleased to meet you! 🙂
Although I’m deeply intuitive, I was raised to think my way out of any situation. Mostly, that strategy worked. When it didn’t, it was a spectacular failure. The side effect of that process was that my intuition went underground.
So the time came when I was really struggling to get traction in my life. I was successful, but it felt like struggle and work. I’m a determined person, but it wasn’t too long before I was pretty overwhelmed – and losing hope, fast. I survived a rafting accident in Alaska once, but this was even harder.
That’s when I started to lean on my intuition. My usual strategy wasn’t working, so I had to develop a new one. Instead of thinking my way forward, I started feeling my way forward. And that’s when things started to move.
When I finally realized what I was doing, I was working on my master’s degree in Psychology. So I wrote my thesis on intuition and the science of flow.
It was like coming home.
A little more about me...
First, I’m a Minnesotan. For people who know, this is everything. Minnesotans are badass, like Alaskans. I grew up riding a horse, shoveling snow, tracking mosquitoes, and driving in unstable conditions. California is my home now because I realized that winter is optional.
I’m a science teacher with two credentials, in Biological Sciences and Earth & Space Science. This career started at the age of 21, when I howled for wolves with the Ojibwe forest rangers as a naturalist in the north woods of Minnesota.
I’ve lived and traveled extensively in Latin America, including Mexico, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. I traveled to Mexico for the first time at 16 and joined Peace Corps Panama as a college grad. As a result I’m fluent in Spanish and salsa dancing.
I’m an artist and musician. As a young woman, I was the lead oboist for the Twin Cities Youth Symphony. Music is still a big part of my life through drumming and kirtan. I’ve displayed my artwork from Colombia to juried art shows in the United States. Art and music keep me innovative, give me a channel for my creativity, and keep me grounded.
And finally, I’m a healer. I’m deeply trained in energy medicine and spent more than twenty years of intensive in-person training with indigenous shamans in North, Central, and South America. With these wise teachers, I opened the doorways to an expanded consciousness and learned to connect ancient paradigms of spirituality with modern life. They know what many of us have forgotten.
My goal as a coach is not to change your mind or your habits. I’ll help you tune into yourself and silence all of the noise that prevents you from being your true, authentic self … so what you REALLY want can unfold with effortless grace.
That might sound selfish. But when you realize your true potential, you inspire others. You become a catalyst. A change agent. A powerhouse. You make a real difference.
You have so much potential. Let’s turn it on.
