"Working with Kimberlee has helped me understand the ways I participate in and perpetuate structural racism, as well as the ways I can effectively challenge the systems and practices that uphold it. Kimberlee does this with profound compassion and love. I have felt that Engaging Across Difference is a journey of transformation- of practice, and of heart and spirit. I am grateful."

"Kimberlee has been a lifeline for me as my Diversity Coach. I have gone through several therapists and counselors without feeling like I was making any progress. Kimberlee is motivating and helps me connect with my desires and needs. She has a unique perspective from her own personal and professional life that is invaluable. She has definitively changed the way I think, act and live in the world. I am convinced everyone needs a Kimberlee in their life." - Nelu
"Kimberlee’s direct, honest and relatable style of talking about race and difference creates a safe atmosphere for challenge and growth. There are no stupid questions but also no sugar coating that veils the truth. With her skillful guidance and willingness to share her own stories, she models the strength in honest vulnerability. Kim helps us confront our assumptions, especially ones we may have been clueless about, and craft better responses that are truly embracing of diversity. Her workshops & coaching will strengthen your inner and outer relationships and give you food for thought, and action"- S. Potts
Feedback from high school teachers and staff members:
"It was nice to have a conversation about those [diversity, equity and inclusion] issues. As you said, we have a lot of the same problems here, but our lack of diversity as a staff sometimes makes it difficult to address them. It provided great perspective."
"Perfect timing! I/we need more of these types of conversations with input from people like Kimberlee."
"Good reminders of important points. She was an engaging presenter."
"Very helpful and informative."
