Kim received her Bachelor of Science in Textile Design with a Minor in Dance from University of Idaho in 1998. After her career as a full time Pilates instructor she attended physical therapy school at Idaho State University and received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in 2011. Kim joined Physical Therapy at Thrive, LLC in 2012. She is excited to work in an environment that combines her physical therapy skills with her vast knowledge of Pilates.
Kim completed her Pilates training and certification by Romana Kryzanowska at the International Pilates and Physical Therapy Center in Seattle in 2003. She continues learning with yearly Pilates continuing education and has completed physical therapy continuing education in manual therapy and movement re-education. She has especially enjoyed the techniques learned through her training with the Mulligan Concept, McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy and in the Sahrmann Movement Impairment Training for the pelvis and lumbar spine. Kim is also certified in Sound Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (SASTM).
Kim enjoys treating all conditions and all types of patients. Because of her dance background, she has a special interest in treating injured dancers. She is passionate about retraining patient’s faulty movement patterns. Her detailed eye combined with excellent verbal and tactile cues helps her patients to find those “new” muscles that can be hard to find. She lives in the North End with her partner Brian and their two “boys”, Boxers Milo and Luche. Kim teaches Pilates on the side, takes dance classes, hikes, bikes and runs with her dogs. She has a creative side, so if she does have spare time she can be found drawing, painting or making jewelry.
