In 2008, she created The Dignity Foundation to coordinate wellness retreats, facilitate self-care workshops and provide meditation instruction for care providers, educators and parents.

Her love of human potential, spirituality, and transformative change is being expanded through her doctoral studies. Kim will receive her Ph.D. in 2014.

Interesting or random fact: 
I was the school mascot at UVM.

What you’d like to accomplish in the next five years:

(1) Continue developing the Integral Psychology program so students are proud of their academic rigor, personal reflection and professional practice. National recognition of our program would also fit nicely into this accomplishment.

(2) Support my daughter through the trials and tribulations of high school and gently land her into the college of her choice.

(3) Complete my doctoral studies with extra energy and joy.

I am passionate about truth, peace and happiness.
