“Kim is one of a select group of people that not only has strong clinical skills as a health professional [dietitian], but can also “humanize the science” and connect effectively with any audience. As a pharmacist myself, I know it is a rare skill to take the jargon and make it easy for people to understand. Kim has that skill, and has used it to our Company’s benefit in community events, TV appearances and other broad outreach opportunities. She is on the cutting edge of America’s desire to learn more about the foods we all eat and how to adopt strategies to eat healthy while still making it fun. She is a valuable asset for any organization needing a personable professional.” -Victor Vercammen, Pharm.D., former colleague
“Kim Kirchherr represents the next wave of dynamic dietitians who believes that food can be medicine too, and doesn’t have to taste like cardboard, or be all about numbers and counting grams of this and that.
Her work at Alexian Brothers Medical Center was always integrity first, and when I was developing CHEF Clinic, her sparky ideas, lovely ease with people and passion for good food came thru again and again.
SuperValu is lucky to have her, and if she lived in Santa Barbara, I’d do what I could to hire her and let her convert people’s eating habits and palates. Kim is going places. Will you be one of those places?”
-John La Puma, M.D., former supervisor, Chef Clinic
“Your contribution toward the professional development of Eastern Illinois University students is deeply appreciated.” -EIU Career Services Staff
