Equity & Inclusion training, Life Coaching & Counseling
Kimberlee is first and foremost a humanist, a deep believer in what is possible when humanity is centered. Her mix of authenticity and raw truth gives permission for those around her to choose progress over perfection and bring their full selves into the room. She is known for finding humor and challenge at just the right moments, and like the best of coaches, leaning in and pushing audiences just enough to believe in the potential she sees. Her approach of connection and compassion is what makes a consultation feel like a conversation with your best friend, a workshop feel like a workout with your favorite trainer, and her presentations feel like a present from your closest confidant.
For those who prefer the resume version, her bachelor's and master's degrees are in education, she speaks multiple languages, is a certified life coach, and she's been doing this work for nearly 20 years. Again, most of all, Kimberlee prioritizes connecting human beings to other human beings, especially when differences in identity is the barrier standing in the way of that connection.
