Principle Kim Reynolds is well-known as a pioneering female climber, Philanthropist and Life Coach. She was voted one of the “Outdoor Persons of the Year” by Hooked on the Outdoors Magazine, in December 2004, for her efforts in “giving back” to the local and global community.
Mind Over Mountains was inspired by Kim’s years of working with women in the outdoors. Something magical happens when women are together. They inspire each other, hold each other to something greater and support each other during the process. It was this camaraderie and spirit of adventure that sparked the creation of this program.
With over 31 years experience leading adventures in the outdoors, Kim is a also a Certified Co-Active Life Coach, trained through The Coaches Training Institute. She has incorporated Life Coaching into her women’s programs to keep the experience alive once clients return home.
From her home base in Ridgway, Colorado, Kim, runs Freelance Adventures Inc., a small company that hosts Mind Over Mountains, Chicks with Picks women’s ice climbing clinics, Chicks Rock women's rock climbing clinics, and service-oriented treks to Central Asia.
The hallmark of Kim’s endeavors is "giving back." All of the businesses she has started include a service component in the form of proceeds donated to local, national and international women’s groups. For example, Chicks with Picks has raised $145,000 for local women's shelters. Kim has helped to raise over $80,000 for The Friendship House, a residential home for at-risk girls in Nepal. Along with her husband Jim, they started The dZi Foundation, a non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting the education, health, culture and welfare of indigenous mountains cultures.
