As a nurse and an executive recruiter, Kim became increasingly aware of the \\"revolving door\\" of nurses in acute care facilities. After interviewing hundreds of nurses, Kim noticed a common theme was emerging. Nurses were expressing signs and symptoms of�Compassion Fatigue, a debilitating phenomenon that is caused by years of built up emotional residue. By combining her passion for nursing, fitness and coaching as well as her extensive research on the science of self-care, Kim created the components of Self-Care Academy�, LLC and NurseFit�. Kim serves as Adjunct Faculty of the International Integrative Nurse Coach Program and has served as leadership faculty of the Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence. She lives in beautiful Colorado and enjoys a very active lifestyle of hiking, biking and skiing in the Rocky Mountains. She teaches aerobics, spinning, kickboxing and yoga. She enjoys traveling, volunteering, reading and encouraging others to create their best life without limitation.
