Registered Dental Hygienist | Career Coach
I have been a dental hygienist for over 10 years and spent 7 of those years as a clinical educator in a dental hygiene program. My background was originally in business, but I soon realized my passion was not in a 9-5 job. Once I discovered my excitement for helping people, I knew I needed to make a drastic change. I graduated near the top of my class in both academics and clinical skills. However, once I hit private practice, I was left with feelings of doubt. After leaving the close-knit circle of my classmates and amazing instructors, I suddenly felt isolated and alone in my operatory. Looking back, I truly feel I can't be the only one who has felt this way and have quickly realized there is an unmet need in our profession. With my passion for helping others, I want to ensure that newly graduated hygienists have a clear and confident path forward and are set up for success in whichever path they chose to follow.
Being able to connect with my patients, students, and mentees is truly one of my favorite aspects of my job. Empowering people with the knowledge and ability to succeed in both their careers and overall well-being is one of the most rewarding aspects of my profession.
Outside of helping others succeed, I am a wife and mom of 2 amazing humans and 2 doodles. I live for my morning workouts, followed by every possible baked good.
My career has allowed me the flexibility to build my own schedule and be fully present in my family's life, and I want to help you do the same. I look forward to working with you and helping you reach your maximum potential.

"Thank you for pushing me when I didn't think I could go on. Your guidance with my resume, interviews, and LinkedIn has been amazing. Your future mentees will be lucky to have you. Thank you again.

"I was struggling with how to best present myself once coming out of hygiene school, and Kim set me up with a personalized coaching plan. She helped me cater my resume to different positions I was interested in and introduced me to best practices I hadn’t thought of. I highly recommend Kim as she has a sense of urgency around your career progression and sets you up for success."
"I had been working nearly 7 months before I found Kim and I wish I had found her sooner. I was struggling with my work environment, skills, treatment planning, coding, and confidence. Pretty much everything. I decided to give a month of coaching a try to see if I could improve, and ever since my sessions with Kim I have felt much more seen and validated as a new and learning hygienist in the field. She is amazing at building your confidence and giving you tips for any questions you have! Kim never makes me feel like I have a stupid question or that something isn’t worth discussing. Coaching has been a fantastic investment in myself and the guidance from an experienced and supportive clinician is exactly what I’ve been missing and needed! She also has a bunch of resources that she’s created to help you navigate through the day more efficiently. I really can’t recommend her enough!
