Guest Speaker: Kim Smadis
Wellness Educator. Cancer Survivor. Wife. Mother. Motivational Speaker.

Kim Smadis is a former senior corporate executive, wife, and mother to four boys whose life completely changed in 2010 after she suffered more life-changing events than ever thought possible: losing her grandmother, being diagnosed with stage III breast cancer, hearing that her best friend had also been diagnosed with breast cancer, and eventually losing her mother. By employing the practices she now shares with her clients, Kim was able to grow from her experience and come out on the other side healthier and more connected to her family than ever before. Kim is excited to share these stories and experiences to help others unearth what's essential to them!
