“Kim was an amazing instructor. I wasn’t too sure on what to expect going into the course but leaving I have a range of new knowledge that I know I’ll need/use at some point. Kim was able to give all the information in what felt like a safe environment. Kim held the audience’s attention the whole time…. I highly recommend Kim! Thank you!”
