Coach’s Spotlight – Kim

Kim is an amazing coach with a long list of students who love her and credit her with their success. She says she got her start in coaching at 12 years old, when, as a student, her coach would call her to sub his classes. She started coaching because she loved the sport and working with kids.

Kim has been married 27 years to her husband Mark. They have 3 boys Colton, Ashton and Jaxton. They love hiking, four wheeling, camping, traveling, watching the boys play baseball, spending time as a family, and pickle ball.
