Kim Burns caught the creative bug early in life.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Kim’s first fell in love with drawing while attending a graphic communications high school. She still pursues her passion for drawing to this day.

Kim earned her bachelor’s degree in business from Kennesaw State University. Prior to JOYN, Kim served as the Project Coordinator for the undergraduate and graduate programs at Life University. In this role, she oversaw contract management, scheduling, course-building, and planned convocation ceremonies.

Prior to that, Kim proudly worked at St. Joseph’s Children Services, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit organization whose mission was to support foster children and placing them with families.

When asking Kim what heaven on earth looks like, she most likely will say the beaches of Barbados. “The gorgeous clear, blue water and white sandy beaches. Pure heaven.”

In her free time, Kim loves spending time with family and friends, specifically vacationing each year in Destin, FL. Also, Kim enjoys watching Sci-Fi movies with friends. Her absolute favorite comic book character? Tony Stark’s Iron Man.

Also, her sister says that she’s a movie buff and that Kim knows every episode of the Golden Girls just by the episode intro.

Kim first learned of JOYN through the firm’s Seasons of Care Workshop.

“My first introduction to JOYN was Seasons of Care, and I found it insightful. I’ve worked in the mental health field, and I keenly understand that most of our life decisions come from a place of emotion. That’s why I find JOYN’s Behavioral Wealth Management so unique – I don’t believe anyone else in Wealth Management understands how important it is as this firm.”
