With an impressive 30 (and counting) years in the service industry, and 11 of those in Aesthetics, she brings abundant experience and quite a bit of humor to the team. Kim gets excited when she finds an amazing graphic, and her mind immediately starts to transform it into an engaging post. She loves the wonderful team of women working at PGC, and being a mom she treasures the flexible work environment that allows her to work when she feels inspired. The schedule also allows time to spend with her husband and two active teenage sons, not to mention the family’s two dogs. According to herself, Kim is trapped in a vicious baking-gym-baking-gym cycle that she spices up with paddle boarding, skiing, and the occasional Netflix binge-watch.

Being a loving wife and mom of two girls and four fur babies, she knows how important it is to seek meditation and stillness in your everyday life. But instead of locking herself in the bathroom like normal people, she finds this by doing impossible yoga poses for 90 minutes in 100 degrees Fahrenheit on an almost daily basis. What a hero!

She loves being part of what she describes as a cohesive team of strong, smart and passionate women at PGC, all of whom make her feel appreciated and valued. When she is not working, Kelly can be found… all over, really. She counts Puerto Vallart, MX among her and her family’s favorite places to travel to, but will go mingle with the locals and get a taste of their culture anywhere in the world. One of the more notable mingles was a safari in Kenya and Tanzania in Africa.
