Kim graduated from James Madison University, with a BS in Health Sciences, a minor in Special Education; and Masters in Occupational Therapy.
Founder and co-owner of Sensational Kidz, Kim’s passions for working with people with physical disabilities started when she was a young girl and would volunteer with her mom at the Northern Virginia Training Center, a facility that would house and provide services for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Fresh out of college, Kim moved to San Francisco where she began her OT career in a hospital setting working with geriatrics. She would soon follow her passion for working with pediatrics working at private clinics, schools and home-based environments. Today, Kim works with children, newborn to high school-aged, helping them address difficulties in fine and gross motor skills, sensory processing, self-help skills and feeding challenges.
Sensational Kidz serves children needing speech therapy and/or occupational therapy. Kim and her staff of occupational therapists are sought after by many families and travel to provide services to those living in the San Francisco bay area down to the peninsula. Many of their clients become like family, but no one is prouder then Kim, when their services are no longer needed.
Kim is a certified member of the American Occupational Therapy Association, California Board of Occupational Therapy and Integrated Listening Systems (iLS). Kim also holds certifications in; Sequential Oral Sensory (S.O.S) Approach to Feeding, Handwriting Without Tears, HANDLE (Holistic Approach to Neuro-Development and Learning Efficiency), Alert Program for Self-Regulation: How Does Your Engine Run?, Zones of Regulation, and the Early Start Denver Model.
Kim lives in San Francisco with her husband and two boys where a day is not complete without a trip to the park. An avid athlete, Kim has competed in triathlons, half ironmans and half marathons. When not training, Kim loves a good work out, spending time with family and friends and enjoying the wine countryside of California.
