Meet our team
Much has been said about her. “She’s boring” is probably not one of them. She is happiest building teams.
Kim is an established CEO and veteran marketing and communications entrepreneur, published book author, 25 year news anchor, reporter and producer with multiple awards including the Queen’s Jubilee Medal, Ontario Leading Women Leading Girls recipient, Ottawa’s Business Woman of the Year and the United Way Community Builder Award.
Kimothy possesses a remarkable contact and client list while producing exceptional results locally, nationally and internationally. She has helped raise millions of dollars in her own hometown, a G7 Capital, for charities and her book resides in the time capsule marking that city’s 150th anniversary. She also co-authored a book, O Canada! A Celebration of 150 Years, that resides in the City of Ottawa’s time capsule.
She has climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, went swimming with sharks and drove over the Alps in an RV. The last one she doesn’t recommend.
As a prolific connector, communicator and collaborator, Kimothy helps clients own their story, so it can be told effectively with the right timing and impact. She excels at designing and implementing 360-degree, multi-platform media, marketing and communications solutions for clients locally, nationally and internationally.

She considers being a foreign correspondent to be the pinnacle of Canadian journalism and a proud segue into business ownership.
Kimothy’s start at CTV was as a student apprentice, where she eventually learned all facets of television journalism in a G7 capital. This included managing a production team and running an entire local newsroom two days a week with her mentor Max Keeping. As the driving force behind the most successful weekend television Ottawa newscast in a generation, she steered countless teams through four corporate owners, vast technological change, increasing competition, and in a constantly evolving media industry.
She received one of the highest awards a journalist can receive, an Honourable Mention from the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) for her story about a dying little boy. She also hosted a documentary, Sexual Violence, Social Media and Society: Is Canada Facing a Crisis? that went on to win an international award, 2016 Telly Award (Bronze).
Instead of picking her 34th country to travel to next she has decided to drive an RV across her own country from Newfoundland to Vancouver Island where she was born (with a toy poodle while working on her lap top). What could possibly go wrong?
