EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE
Kim decided to study Chinese Medicine after she returned from 2 years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in China. Kim earned her Master’s Degree from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine in San Francisco, California where she got to study with some of the practitioners who helped shape Traditional Chinese Medicine in the US. Kim worked in several clinics in San Francisco including an addiction clinic, the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic and several community acupuncture clinics around the city. In 2011, she opened up her own acupuncture clinic “Family Room” in Pacifica, California. She was a pillar of healing in the local community and her clinic was voted “Best of the City” in 2021. In addition to Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, Kim has studied shiatsu massage and Reiki (a Japanese healing system).
Kim decided to move back to Minnesota in 2022 to be a health advocate for her mom who has dementia and to be closer to her family and Minnesotan roots. Outside of her clinical work, you will find Kim in her community garden, trying out new recipes, foraging local herbs and listening to podcasts. She is also an avid Qi Gong and yoga practitioner and explorer of consciousness and human potential.
