The Recipe for a Great Life: Not Only Surviving, But Thriving
Kim shares her recipe for survivorship, which has allowed her to not only survive, but thrive in life – even in the midst of unexpected change and challenges. Her lesson is simple: that we must all continue to adapt and adjust our own recipes, not being stuck in our past or allowing others to write our recipe.

Resigning as General Manager of the Universe: Finding Balance And Clarity in a World of Chaos
For many of us, life is anything but balanced. It’s more like a colossal collision between the thousands of things pulling at our time…the demands of work, home and everything in between…not to mention arms and legs if you have kids. In this interactive session, Kim shares her own lessons learned about balancing the chaos of life through the demands of being a wife, mom, friend, cancer survivor, passionate volunteer, entrepreneur, as well as dozens of other hats she wears. Learn the five steps to “resigning as general manager of the universe”: saying no, setting priorities, delegating more, eliminating things that drain us, and taking “me” time. Audiences leave “resigning as general manager of the universe” and with a renewed sense of empowerment by taking back their own life, one in which they are thriving instead of simply surviving.
The Rollercoaster Ride of Life: Learning to Throw Your Hands Up, Scream and Find the Joy
Rollercoaster – defined as anything characterized by abrupt and extreme changes. Also known as life. Kim shares her honest, raw, inspiring and humorous ride on the rollercoaster of life. Through the ups and downs of cancer, divorce and other dips, she learned to throw her hands up, scream and in the end find the joy on the ride of her life, even though at times, she would have rather been on the ferris wheel. Kim shares the tools she used to successfully navigate change and find the joy so that others can learn how to successfully ride the rollercoaster of life.
Eat Dessert First – Make TODAY Count
After facing breast cancer, losing two friends and an aunt to the same disease, facing a divorce, and other challenges in life, Kim has realized that we must live in the moment. To Kim, her sweet tooth and her unquestionable love of chocolate, that means eating dessert first any chance she gets. Kim shares lessons on why we need to focus on what matters, let go of the rest, laugh, love and yes, eat dessert first. Audiences will leave having a burning desire to eat dessert first, enjoy more sunsets, laugh more, do what brings them joy in life and make today count.
From Patient and Caregiver to Advocate
Facing a health care crisis can be a challenge, often times leaving patients and caregivers overwhelmed, and not sure where to turn. Kim shares her experience as a breast cancer patient, and those of friends and family, who have been in “the system” as patients and caregivers. Kim shares practical advice – encouraging her audience to become their own advocates as it relates to their health. In the area of health and wellness, there are many ways to become an advocate. Advocate for yourself. Advocate for a family member or friend. Advocate for other individual patients who may not be able to speak for themselves. Kim believes that her own patient advocacy allowed her to get the best care possible. Breast cancer taught Kim the importance of asking the hard questions – the importance of taking action – of being proactive. She leaves her audiences empowered to arm themselves with information, to do their homework, to build their medical team, to establish strong communication, to ask the hard questions, to not be afraid to get 2nd opinions and to not only find their voice, but make it heard. Kim leaves you inspired to take control of your health and your life.
No Doctor, I Don’t Understand Your Alphabet Soup (This program is designed for medical health care professionals.)
Kim shares her experiences from the patient’s perspective after hearing those four words “you have breast cancer.” Often times, doctors, their medical jargon and their assumptions about a patient’s understanding of their own diagnosis leaves patients feeling more confused, scared and overwhelmed than before they were diagnosed. This program was specifically designed to provide health care providers with stories from real patients, providing suggestions on how to talk to patients, and allow those attending to improve their interactions with their patients.
