Change. We want it, but what are we willing to do for it? Kimberely Dixon's concept “If it is to be it is up to me” puts you in the driver seat, accelerates your growth and can create tangibles in any area of your life. Kimberely Dixon has spent over 25 years in the Portland/Vancouver area with a flourishing family of ten children and 14 grandchildren. She acquired her post-secondary education in Business Management and Organizational Leadership while raising her family.

Kimberely looks forward to finishing up final credits for her second Master's degree in Adult Postsecondary Education. Her areas of expertise are in advocacy, training/facilitation, organizational leadership and behavior, starting over and being a voice to the voiceless. Her natural born advocacy has found a place after a significant loss of one of her children to gun violence.

She currently serves as a member of the Crisis Response Team, Board of Trustees Trillium Family services and has recently completed serving as Co-Chair for 3 to Phd, a collaborative partnership between Faubion PK-8 and Concordia University, Kaiser Permamente, Trillium and Basics Foods to create a safer, healthier and more educated community.
