KIMBERLY WARD, C'88
OWNER, KIM'S HERBS & DETOX CENTER
God's true purpose for me is to help others with their health. I know this is my Passion Job.
How KIM Puts Food On The Table: "From 9a to 5p, I'm an IT Project Manager. I manage projects and people. I'm only doing this Corporate Job until I can do my 'Passion Job' full time."
No Playa Hatin' Here: Again, Kim has a Corporate Job and a Passion Job. "What gets me through 'playing the game' at my Corporate Job on the weekdays is knowing I get to leave at 5p and head straight to my Passion Job, Kim's Herbs & Detox Center."
I'm A Hustla Baby. I Just Want You To Know: My side-hustle is also my Passion Job, Kim's Herbs & Detox Center. It's an herbal store that offers detox services and products (e.g., an ionic detox foot bath, detox kits, biomat treatments, acupuncture) plus health coaching. This IS truly God's purpose for me. The foundation scripture for my Passion Job is 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 – ‘What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's’. This scripture is written on the wall behind my cash register...can't miss it."
In An Apocalypse, What Is All Over KIM's News Feed?: "Awesomelyluvvie.com. This site offers accurate news and includes articles of interest to Black women like myself. It is highly relatable and I like it."
Bottomless Brunch Versus Happy Hour Tapas?: Kim takes a pass on both for the most part. "I don't eat out much due to my restrictive diet." Eating out for Kim can be stressful, especially when she has to navigate the different options on the menu. "However, I will go to a Happy Hour to chill with friends and enjoy good music. I'll just pass on the food. :-)"
Latest Vulcan Chess Move?: "Stepping out on faith and fulfilling my God given purpose. I help people through my Passion Job. Every day I encounter so many who want and need help with their health. Several of my customers have exclaimed that they are 'SO happy' I opened up shop and that they truly need me along with my products and services. I cannot begin to tell you how fulfilled I am by this.” KIM's Past and Future Display Of #SpelmanBlackGirlBrilliance: Opening up Kim's Herbs and Detox Center is my most recent conquest. What's next on my horizon? I intend to grow this business to the point where I can leave Corporate America. I want to focus solely on Kim's Herbs and Detox Center. I have an intense passion for natural health and healing. It is my love. My life."
