Kim Shea has been involved in the field of geriatrics and helping seniors for seventeen years. She is a certified retirement coach and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a Masters of Advanced Studies in Leadership of Healthcare Organizations from UC San Diego. She is currently seeking a Masters of Transpersonal Psychology with a Specialization in Applied Spirituality.
Kim is the owner/president of Aging Purposefully, a retirement coaching company that she launched in 2018. After taking on her first caregiving assignment in 2003, Kim’s interest in helping others find their purpose was piqued. She realized how transformational it is for someone to feel needed and engaged in life especially after they reach retirement. Kim is also the president and administrator of a geriatric psychology practice, which gives her first-hand practical insight into the needs of seniors. Previously, Kim served as a caregiver and activities director for a local nursing home.
Kim has developed a specialized tool to help seniors and those who are approaching retirement age realize their full potential and purpose in life after they have retired. Kim coaches individuals and is especially helpful in coaching couples who might not otherwise talk about their expectations in retirement. She serves clientele in all areas of San Diego County but can also provide coaching through online conferencing with anyone regardless of their location. Kim has been privileged to talk to many “retired” people who are now, because of coaching, happier than they have ever been in their new purposeful roles.
