Kim Ambor

Accredited Expertship Coach & Facilitator

Introduction

I was born in South Africa although I’ve travelled a lot, having lived in four different cities and worked in numerous others around the world. I’ve been living in Australia for ten years now, and I’m married with two “tweenage” kids so likely to be staying here for a while.

As a family we love travelling and exploring, and I’m very involved in my kids’ extracurricular activities – soccer, netball, trapeze, school events etc. When I have time to myself I enjoy swimming, baking and reading.

Professional background

I’ve been working for HFL since 2015, and my area of expertise is helping people get the most out of themselves, helping people reach their own potential.
