She started the practice as the only physiotherapist in 2019 and is now expanding her team, facilities, and services to offer optimal personalised healthcare services that cater to individual needs. After graduating, Kim began her career in musculoskeletal physiotherapy for the first four years.

As a mother of two daughters herself, she understands the challenges that come with family life and takes a practical approach when dealing with families. Kim is passionate about working in the early intervention space, where she can make a significant difference in a child's development and future prospects by considering overall development and how various factors can affect it.

She also has a keen interest in mental health and understands how emotions can impact the body. She takes a holistic approach when treating her patients, considering the mind, body, and biomechanics. She introduced neurofeedback and amino neuro frequency therapy (ANF) to KAH's services to improve outcomes, particularly for clients who have not had success with other treatments. Kim has a particular focus on biomechanics, motor control, neurological and anatomical functioning, and she is committed to reducing the effects of dysfunctions in these areas.
