Kimberly Derkach, RN, BSN, earned her degree in Nursing from the University of Saskatchewan, where she is now a Nursing faculty member and Instructor.
Kim's nursing experience has been specialized in the areas of neuroscience, neurosurgery, education, special needs, pediatrics, caregiving, geriatrics, chronic care, and mental health and wellness.
Through both personal health challenges and her nursing experience, Kim became passionate about holistic health and sharing her story through mental health advocacy, grief empowerment, and holistic healing modalities as they have completely enhanced her life. She learned to heal her body, mind and spirit by balancing her work life, spending time in nature, nourishing her body and implementing daily breath, meditation, mindfulness, gratitude, faith and energy based practices.
Kim believes that in order for true healing to occur one must consider all levels of healing; physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. At times when one aspect is out of balance all areas may suffer.

From this integrated approach, she assists others to build self-compassion, resiliency and embrace their own story. As a Nurse Kim recognizes that every illness has a story, but that we also always have the opportunity to rewrite our story. Together we can support each other as we grow and heal. Community is powerful medicine.
