Her passion for helping people in her community has only grown over the years, and she strives to provide the people of her hometown with high quality care that they can count on to get them back to fully enjoying their lives. Kim learned to love and embrace Thibodaux and all its people from her grandfather, Gibbens Robichaux, and she hopes to give back to this special community in a way that will make him proud.

Her training is geared towards assessing mechanics of lifts, such as squat, deadlift, power clean, bench press, clean and jerk, pull-ups, among others, with slow motion analysis in order to improve mechanics, improve efficiency, and decrease risk for injury. Her training has also enabled her to provide accessory programming to address muscle imbalances and/or mechanical problems, as well as modifying programming to assist patients in returning from injury to weight lifting as soon as possible. 

  • Certified Dry Needling Provider: Kim is a certified dry needling provider.
