In August of 2019, Kim and her two young children (2 and 4 at the time) were sideswiped by a utility vehicle and slammed into oncoming traffic on the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in Malibu, California. PCH is known as a deadly highway. 58 people have been killed on PCH since 2010. They hit an oncoming car and miraculously made it to the opposite shoulder of the highway, facing the wrong way. Her TBI left her unable to speak or walk properly. Her young children also had suspected TBIs. Kim was unable to work for several years. They've since faced years of therapy and treatment. It's been a long journey to recovery for all of them physically, mentally and emotionally. It was a near-death experience that changed their lives in a split second. Although Kim and her kids continue to struggle with symptoms, she is grateful to have survived and proud of the progress they have made. Kim is determined to get stronger and better every day.
