Nicole Kim

Life and Leadership Coach 

I empower my clients to make conscious and aligned choices to achieve their personal and professional goals with greater ease. With 8 years of experience in the highly demanding finance industry (private equity, hedge fund, investment banking), I understand how career pressures and stress can take over your life. Our coaching relationship gives you the space to take back control and live consciously and intentionally, leading to greater well-being. I guide my clients in getting clarity around why they are stuck and how they are reacting (vs. responding) to situations. With this awareness, I support my clients in getting what they really want.

Coaching Expertise

I'm a certified professional coach and earned my MBA from Stanford. I am also in training to be a certified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction teacher through Brown University. In our coaching partnership, you can expect a confidential, compassionate and non-judgmental space in which I ask questions, share observations and challenge you to deeply explore who you are and what you want - and how to get it! I enjoy supporting my clients on both personal and professional topics, as each often brings greater awareness and positive change to the other

Industry Focus

I enjoy working with people across many industries. I’ve worked with clients in finance, technology, venture capital, startups, healthcare, large corporates, food and beverage, consumer goods, and industrials. I do have deep finance experience (private equity, hedge fund, and investment banking), so clients with high-intensity careers appreciate how I understand the associated demands, culture and challenges.

Target Clients

My core coaching clients are deep thinkers who are seeking more clarity in their lives to achieve sustainable and meaningful results, ultimately leading to greater satisfaction. I am open to and find these types of clients in all levels/roles. I’ve primarily worked with c-suite executives, mid-level managers, and post-MBAs.
