My Story

I came to the United States in 2004. During that time, I was married and a mother of 2 girls under the age of 3.

I found myself in a very abusive relationship for almost 10 years. This led me and my daughters to live in a women's shelter. I was scared, felt alone, had no job…but I knew there had to be a better way. I eventually left the women's shelter but had to live on welfare since all I had was some change in my wallet and an old car. I was grateful for the help, but I wanted to set a better example for my kids.   


To improve the quality of my daughters’ lives, I learned to do nails, facials, and massage therapy.  Ultimately, none of these jobs was a good enough fit for me.  


My friend was doing eyelashes, but the course investment was too expensive back then and I couldn't afford it.  So I taught myself using YouTube videos and practiced with friends and family.  Soon, through word of mouth, my reputation began to grow. I said ‘yes’ to all of the appointments at any time of the day. I worked out of my apartment until I had enough money to rent a room.  I was very blessed that I was so busy that I hired someone to help me.


One day I noticed a pawn shop that was going out of business.  I took over that space, remodeled it, and started my Sugar Lash Beauty Bar business.  The company grew fast, and after 2 years, my customer base had grown to 50,000 people, with 250 5-star reviews on Yelp, and I expanded to a second location in 2018.


Today, my daughters and I live our best life in the home that I own in California.

What Do My Clients Say About Me?


Kim at Mind Retreat is very compassionate and will take the time to understand you and your individual needs. She is a great listener and even gave me a recap of the session (on a note) with practical advice to overcome my situation. She went above and beyond and recommended reading material to reinforce the advice and steps to help me through my journey. I feel so blessed to have her as my life coach! Give her a try, she is AMAZING! ❤️


I don’t know what kind of situation you will need to improve in your life but 100% I recommend Kim's service! Not only she is easy to talk to, but she knows what she’s talking about. She’s been through a lot personally and professionally. To me, she’s an example that I like to follow and listen to. I’ve been following her since she was part of an interview on 6 digit Club with Glenn Rosemberg and her success story. She has the tools and the knowledge to help you get self-confidence. She will follow up with you, correct you, and believe it or not, you need help. Can you imagine being a player with no coach? Everyone needs a mentor! You will not regret it. She’s the one.
