Currently Kim is a Fellow of Simon Fraser University Centre for Dialogue working on the Two Ways of Knowing project.
Kim began her career as a field geologist doing everything from dirt-bagging to running drill programs in remote camps in the Hemlo area, Eskay Creek area, NWT and the Yukon. After earning her Applied Masters in Mineral Exploration from Queen’s University she worked for several years doing mineral assessment work for First Nations and staking and optioning properties. She then accepted a position as a Federal Land Claims Negotiator in the Yukon during the completion of the Umbrella Final Agreement and signing of the first 4 Final Agreements.
After marrying into a Fist Nation culture and having children, Kim studied writing for film and television and wrote her first book, on story structure, which she delivers workshops on internationally.
Kim has also done extensive work in research, workshop development and facilitation including First Nation-Government-Business conferences. Kim’s interest in conflict resolution lead her to study at the Harvard Negotiation Project and BC Justice Institute. Kim has been a member of the Yukon Water Board and Chair of the Yukon Land Use Planning Council.
2WK theory is currently becoming a book, expected in Spring 2017. Kim also gives workshops and does consultations on Two Ways of Knowing.
