Having previously worked for large consulting and defense/government contracting firms, Kim envisioned a new type of company when she founded Mozaik Solutions – one driven and anchored daily in its values, dedicated to total customer satisfaction, and nimble and able to respond quickly to changing needs and priorities. She also saw the need for customized, dynamic teams of professionals that could come together to meet client challenges in a cost-effective, solution-oriented manner. In this way, Mozaik builds its teams by leveraging a robust network of respected, diverse professionals around the globe to best meet the needs of clients. Kim’s combined experience in emergency/crisis management, health community initiatives in humanitarian crises, and organizational leadership also led her to co-create the Crisis Athlete™ program. At its core, the program challenges, questions, and envisions new, more sustainable pathways for crisis leaders to think about resilience by leveraging and applying the power of neuroscience at the individual, organizational, and community levels.


Kim holds a MA in International Relations from the University of San Diego, and a BS in Psychology and Political Science from the University of Oregon.
