About Kim

Funded my wellness habit by running other people's companies. Then I started a few of my own, one went national and the others...well, didn't. It has all brought me to who I am now and I am grateful for every moment of it.

In my early career, I became a licensed Biofeedback Practitioner in the early 2000's. The time has finally come where wearables- basically pocket-sized biofeedback machines- has become a $30 billion industry (TechCrunch 2017).

My third startup aims to make these emerging technologies more sticky with content from leading mindfulness professionals and crowdsourcing new talent. There are plenty of meditation apps and plenty of wearables but no one is connecting them. My aim is to help make people superhuman, want to join me?
