This is why I believe The Mayfly Project is so important: “The more relationships a child has the more likely they will be to recover from trauma and thrive. Relationships are the agents of change and the most powerful therapy is human love.” Dr. Bruce Perry

Kimberly has lived in Boise, ID the majority of her life and enjoys the many opportunities to engage in outdoor activities with her husband, son, and two big dogs. She obtained her undergraduate degree in sociology from Black Hills State University and obtained her master’s degree in social work from Northwest Nazarene University. While living in Custer, SD she was introduced to fly fishing and has been hooked ever since!  For over two decades, Kimberly has worked alongside children and families involved with Child Welfare. In 2016 she transitioned to private practice as a mental health therapist and enjoys coming alongside others on their journey of healing and exploration. When The Mayfly Project came across her radar she knew she had to be part of their team! Kimberly continues to look forward to giving back to youth in foster care and helping them develop life skills, self-care and resiliency through The Mayfly Project.
