Director of Connections
Kim is an ordinary country girl from a small town. After losing her dad as an infant, she started off life with deep pain in her heart. As a teenager she found herself running into the world to find comfort and happiness. Trying to fill the voids in her heart in all the wrong places, she developed habits that led her down a very rebellious path. She strived to be recognized and to appear to be a "good girl", but her best efforts only offered a temporary fix.
While at Saint Joseph’s Collage of Maine earning a degree for Elementary education, she joined Mary Kay. It has turned into a 17 year full time career, reaching peaks of over a half million dollar company, helping hundreds of women establish a business and many to raise up to become leaders. Just before being blessed with a pink Cadillac, she drew near to God for one last shot to see if He was real. And He drew near to her. A friend randomly sent her a message inviting her to church.
That divine appointment stopped Kim in her racing, and striving tracks. She met Jesus! She discovered she was a sinner in need of a savior. Far from a perfect journey but one of forgiveness, mercy, hope and eternal victory. A journey of God’s faithfulness to continuously persist us no matter how far we drift, Jesus is the only one who can fill voids in our heart and give us HOPE! She is called to be a mom to her son Gavin. They are a duo shining for Jesus. She now works daily for the Lord not for man with her full armor of God on to help Him to take back what the enemy has robbed in women’s lives.

“I love to encourage others. I am a child of the Most High who enjoys wearing red lipstick, has a passion for chocolate, savors a good cup of tea, is barefoot more often than not, and has an eye that occasionally twitches. I am a Momma of many, a wife of fifteen + years, and a research junkie. I write, cook, garden, puddle jump, read, sing in the shower, and mix up my metaphors. Nice to meet you!”
