Kim has made numerous television appearances and was recognized in People Magazine as one of the "Fifty Most Beautiful People in the World". She has received numerous keys to cities for her humanitarian efforts.  In addition she was also awarded “The Order of the Palmetto” which is the highest honor to be given to any South Carolinian.


    After graduating from New York University, Kim pursued a career in public accounting with Ernst & Young LLP, one of the Big Four accounting firms. Today, she is a community volunteer and entrepreneur, and motivational speaker. A professional speaker for nearly twenty years, she entertains and inspires audiences with her programs, using her varied experiences and sharing stories of overcoming obstacles, such as brain surgery.


    Kim is the daughter of Valerie and Charles Aiken of Columbia, South Carolina.  She is married and loves being mom to her two beautiful children.

    This week's women headliners span the globe and news!  From Davos, the host to the World Economic Forum (WEF), an annual meeting of global political and business elites and the home of one of Switzerland's biggest ski resorts, women made headlines for their participation in many ways.  From the lack of women participants, to the women who did attend and made headlines:  from Angela Merkel to Christine Lagarde to Emma Watson reviewing her #HeforShe non-profit's newest campaign "IMPACT 10X10X10".  Then in the U.S. the biggest headliner this past week was the President' Obama's 2015 State of the Union address and the woman headliner, Senator Joni Ernst as the Republican speech in response.  And for women in business, tech startup giant Joanna Widenemuller, CEO of 1Page and her feature as the $100MM woman in tech.  Tune in every week to hear women in the headliners and those making their own news!

    CRITICAL CONVERSATIONS: State of the Union to States Rights

    in Politics

    President Obama delivered his sixth State of the Union Address last night.  Was he truthful when he said "The shadow of crisis has passed, and the State of the Union is strong."


    Critical Conversation's host Lisa Ruth and Communities Digital News senior editor and economist Dr. Jim Picht will discuss the State of the Union, President Obama's address and Congresswoman Jodi Ernst's Republican Response. 


    From the State of the Union to State's Rights, panelists Attorney James Edwards and national writer and Communities journalist Al Maurer, of Colorado, will be talking state's rights - the legal issue, not the social. Colorado is being sued by adjoining states over their legalization of marijuana. Appellate courts are wavering on states rights when it comes to federally mandated rights to abortion.  Can a state say that "gay marriage" is not legal, while an adjoining state says it is? 


    Join Critical Conversations, a production of Communities Digital News and the Communities Digital News Hour on Blog Talk Radio every thursday, 6:30pm EST and join the live show that will then be available On Demand.
