Committee member | Technology Consultant | Educator
I’m Kim, a technology consultant and educator with nearly two decades of experience living and working in diverse settings across Asia, North America, Europe, and Africa. On the micro level, I thrive at empowering teachers and other professionals to authentically embed new and emerging technologies in their classrooms and workplaces. I create a dynamic, inquiry-based, learner-focused environment for everyone with whom I collaborate. On the macro level, I guide schools, school districts, and businesses in implementing innovative, tech-rich, and community-inclusive learning programs within their organizations, in order to meet their varied goals. I pride myself in effective cross-cultural communication, which is evidenced in my business functioning smoothly across 6 time zones, with employees in four different countries.
In educational settings, I excel at supporting schools in their journey towards 1:1 (student:laptop) learning. While I am from the U.S., I currently live in Bangkok with my husband Alex, who is also an educator. In my spare time, I enjoy geeking out about my lifelong learning journey on my blog, Always Learning, or training for and competing in powerlifting which I detail on my other blog, Learning to Lift. Other interests of mine include plant-based cooking, yoga, Zen meditation, photography, reading (especially science fiction), traveling, and leading an urban hiking meetup. I volunteer as the Secretary General of the Thai Powerlifting Federation, and am passionate about supporting women in their quest to reach their strength goals. Other fun facts about me are that I collect Persian carpets, view eating as a top priority, and have a goal to visit 50 countries before turning 50 (having already met my goal of visiting 30 countries before 30).
