Kim quickly transitioned from stellar performance on the court to the medical sales industry in the areas of sales, training and leadership.

Kim brings the true tale of what “living up to your potential” means by relating leadership lessons learned on the volleyball court. While Kim’s transparency engages the audience and draws people in; her tough stance on “no excuses” propels the attendees to take action. Kim’s star personality may shine bright but it is her authenticity that encourages and inspires others to trust their leadership abilities and perform at their greatest potential.
Kim recently was awarded the International Golden Rule Award naming her a Goodwill Ambassador for Human Rights and a Life of Honor award at the Gerald Ford Museum in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
