Kim Gravel is a veteran television host, entrepreneur, public speaker and certified life coach but more importantly she has a passion for helping people live their best and most authentic lives.
Though she comes from a long line of strong “warrior women”, Kim spent much of her childhood feeling like an ugly duckling. As a teenager she decided she had nothing to lose and entered a local pageant to conquer her fears and faltering self image. Despite the naysayers that told her she would never win a major pageant with a gangly figure and short hair, Kim realized that her dynamic personality and quick wit were her biggest assets and at the age of 19 dazzled crowds and judges alike becoming one of the youngest Miss Georgias in pageant history. After serving as the 1992 US Goodwill Ambassador to Japan, Kim returned to the states to make her mark.
Two decades of hard work and hustle in the corporate world honed her skills as a manager, mentor, life coach and entrepreneur. Regular Janes and celebrities alike seek out Kim to consult on everything from brand development and image perception to beauty and inspirational motivation. Her straightforward “speak the truth with love” style has kept her on speed dial at the Steve Harvey Show where she has made Kim their most booked guests. Through her clothing line, her hit Lifetime show “Kim of Queens” and her annual sold-out women’s conference in Atlanta, Kim has strived to help women achieve self confidence and realize that happiness in life doesn’t come from the judgement of others, but in embracing the things that truly make a person unique.
Kim lives in metro Atlanta with husband Travis and her two young boys, Beau and Blanton.
