Kim believes life’s inevitable challenges are an opportunity to pause and reinvent ourselves – not only surviving but thriving. Kim has a passion to tell her story and looks forward to sharing the tools she used to not only survive, but thrive. It’s a story she can tell through many chapters: her battle with breast cancer, the demands of owning her own business, patient advocacy, the balance of being a working mother, the unexpected challenges of marriage, family and divorce, having a second chance at love, remarrying a widower with two small children, and adjusting to a fabulous new life in a blended household as Kim Becking – mom of three, party of five.
Kim graduated with honors from Missouri State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in marketing and received her Juris Doctorate with honors from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law. Kim currently resides in Columbia, Missouri with her husband, Jason, and her three children, Brandon (17), Adelaide (14) and Jack (11).
