A 12-year veteran of supporting individuals in job search, Kim facilitated a weekly job transition strategies and tactics network program in Andover, MN between 2006 and 2018. She has over 30 years of extensive experience providing Job Transition support to hundreds of job seekers across the U.S. and abroad, in combination with extensive experience gained consulting for several companies (including employment at Minnesota's leading, Fortune 100 Medical Device company, where she was introduced to and developed broad skills in marketing product management) very early in her career.
Kim holds and has extensively used a Bachelor's Degree in Business Management, a Law Enforcement Degree, and a Graduate Degree in Psychological Counseling and Therapy.
