It soon became her passion to share its transformative and empowering message with as many children, parents and educators as possible.
Kim’s inviting, playful style creates memorable trainings, while her experience with Conscious Discipline is top-notch. “The hours flew by” is a common sentiment at her trainings as attendees are amazed by their own level of engagement and focus on the material.

“I want to thank you for the training today. Thank you for not just another pep-talk. Don’t get me wrong, we all need that, but to be frank, after teaching 10 years, I was SO lucky to get what I did from you today. I needed the concrete “real talk” and “real strategies” that Conscious Discipline offers. Thank you for making this training come alive. Something I feel will make a huge difference in my life and the lives of children that I love teaching every day.”
“Kim has a wonderful gift for helping children and adults! After attending her presentation in Tampa, FL I was inspired and motivated to change my classroom philosophy regarding classroom management and relationships with my children, their families, and even my teaching colleagues. I saw changes immediately—within nine days of school starting I saw a true difference in myself and my students. An added bonus; once I removed the reward treasure box of candy for the students, I lost three pounds! Who knew a side benefit of Conscious Discipline would be weight loss!”
“Wow! Thank you so much for touching my heart and so many of my colleagues’ as well. I truly enjoyed your presentation... so much fun … SO MUCH learning! I believe in Conscious Discipline, but the how to bring it all together really matters. You present with enthusiasm, knowledge, experience and love. You didn’t just tell us, you modeled for us and then involved us.”
Kim had an enormous amount of wonderful information and examples to share and to try to get it all in a short amount of time. Kudos!
Kim did an exceptional job - great attitude and energy.
Kim is a wonderful trainer. I enjoyed the training. She worked well with a difficult audience and bad acoustics and too many people! She had great patience with the talkative group.
