She currently sits on the Family Advisory Committee at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU and has also led the Feeding Tube Support group there.
What Clients Have to Say
Kimberly made a medical binder for us that honestly saved us so many times. We are in the process of adoption and our son is medically fragile so we have several things we need to keep with us at all times. While on vacation in TN he has a seizure. Very quickly we were able to turn to the pages the EMS crew, registration, and hospital staff needed. This saved several minutes and took lots of stress off myself and my husband needing to look up and remember important information. Everyone we have talked to has mentioned how nice our binder is and how it would be nice for everyone with a medically fragile child to have one. It stays with us at all times and as his information grows his binder grows. We are so glad Kim decided to share her knowledge of these binders.
