Her professional performance never wavered, but inside she was broken, empty and on the verge of giving up. Kim shares her story of recovery to help others find the courage, power and strength to rise above the fear, stigma and shame of mental illness.

In April 2019, she will be certified by NAMI National as a State Trainer for the NAMI, In Our Own Voice program.
