I attended Kim’s workshop, “Taming the Wild West”, and also watched her speak on various panels. She is kickass! She doesn’t hesitate to share her beliefs and provide examples to advance others within the tech industry. There is something lively about Kim, as she communicates her experiences and provides feedback to others. One of the reasons her network is vast is because she works to help and continues to give back to her community. Kim is very quick to engage, figure out how she can assist, and connect you with a person or idea. I am especially grateful to have met her as she connected me to different mentors after I shared my immediate goals with her. I highly recommend her for any speaking or community engagement roles.
