Educating Through Experience and Adversity
Through Journalism, I found my voice. Through advocacy, I found my passion. Now, I use my experience to help others.
As a keynote speaker, I tell my story of overcoming childhood abuse to live a fulfilling life. I also share my history of college sexual assault. This life-altering experience happens far too often, but it doesn't have to. I explain what young women and men need to know about consent.
As a journalist, I've also come to realize there's a disconnect between members of the media and public servants. In reality, we all have very similar goals. I use my experience to consult these brave men and women, and explain how we can better work together.
In the end, that's my goal, to help people succeed.
How can my life experience help you?

I have been very impressed with Kim’s commitment to advocating on behalf of victims of sexual violence. She has appeared more than once at the Capitol to testify before legislative committees. Her testimony about her personal experience is powerful. As an advocate for sexual assault survivors, I have few better allies than Kim Fischer.
Brian King - Utah State Representative
From day one I was impressed with both Kim’s presence and her incredible talent to tell a story in a way that transforms the listener. She is the perfect person to Emcee The Children’s Center Gala as she intimately understand the struggles that so many of our children and families face. Kim is a powerful example of a person who overcame extreme adversity to, not only survive, but use her voice as an advocate and inspiration for so many. There is no one else who I would rather have at the microphone at my events than Kim!
Joelle Kanshepolsky - The Children's Center
I highly recommend Kim as an emcee, correspondent, host, advisor, or consultant for any of your organizational needs. Kim will NOT disappoint, just book her and trust in her skills, knowledge and abilities to positively impact peoples’ lives, as she will exceed your expectations.
