More About Kimberlee

ADHD and Executive Function Coach

I am an extremely active person and I have been teaching dance (mostly ballet and modern/contemporary) since I was a teenager.  I teach dance courses in higher education as well as at local studios.   I have a few dance films that have been seen at national film festivals!  I run and walk, do yoga, pilates, barre, HIIT workouts – I’ll try anything! What makes me lose track of time the most is hiking in the woods – whether it’s local or during traveling, I can’t get enough of it!


I have traveled to Hawaii, Germany, Prague, Paris, and Yosemite National Park.  My favorite creative activity is dance – but I love all the arts – music, art, theater. 


I have 2 masters degrees – an MFA in Dance as well as a Masters in Social Work and spent years working in the field. I have an extensive background working with students who have anxiety and depression.  More personally, I struggled with severe anxiety as a teenager/young 20’s where my life was severely limited.  This experience gives me a lot of compassion for young people that are struggling with anxiety and/or other issues such as ADHD.  I have a strong desire to inspire students to feel empowered by their own abilities.  I strive to have students overcome hurdles and feel that sense of empowerment that can be so imperative to moving forward in their journey.
