As a child, Kim's dad always thought she would become a lawyer for a few simple reasons - she questioned everything, she was persistent and stubborn, and she was highly observant. So, although she didn't pour her focus into the legal realm, she did utilize these built in attributes to excel in Health, Wellness, and Human Optimization.
An injury in 1999, exposed Kim to the world of acupuncture and how effective it is in attaining lasting healing. From that first hand experience, she decided to focus on Oriental Medicine as her career. Along her educational journey, she became a student of Master Acupuncturist, Dr. Chieko Maekawa. Dr. Maekawa deepened Kim's acupuncture skills beyond school basics and gave her a "Mr. Miyagi/Karate Kid" deep dive into the doctor's lineage. Seitai Shinpo, "correct posture acupuncture method," guided Kim to becoming one of Dr. Maekawa's first graduates.
Kim has been practicing since 2004, in Hilo where she treats everything from basic aches and pains to all the mysterious untreatable "syndromes" doctors can't understand.
