Her passion and empathy extend to providing specialized birth parent counseling for birthparents choosing adoption, offering support, guidance and compassionate care.
In her role as National Director of Operations, Kim brings her wealth of leadership development, experience, unwavering dedication, and deep understanding of family dynamics. SFC’s values are radical hospitality, disruptive generosity and compassion fueled by mercy. SFC is well-positioned to continue its mission to be a beacon of hope, compassion, and support for families across the nation.
In her spare time, Kim can be found recharging in nature with her husband and three children as well as coaching fitness classes at her local GoodLife.

What Our Guests Say
Just back to work after enjoying a wonderful breakfast. I wanted to thank you and your team for putting on this event. The Lord’s name was certainly lifted high and the message of healing and forgiveness in Jesus Christ was clearly communicated. I was very pleased to be there and wanted to make sure that I mentioned to you that your work on this event each year is much appreciated!
- Love the organization of event, the attention to details re dietary needs, the speaker, the diversity of people on platform, praying for our city and first responders. As well, the theme of loving our neighbour is great and consistent.
- We bought two tables this year- ½ for our employees and ½ for the people we serve. For some of our group, this event is the main highlight of their year.
- The breakfast was uplifting as well as confidence and hope inspiring. It was a dynamic mix of the faithful with an encouraging testimony of community commitment to making a difference in the lives of the vulnerable and marginalized.
- It is always such a blessing to gather and gather with like-minded friends and be inspired by leaders within our community. Today’s message was a poignant reminder to love God so we can love others best.
