Kim has always left space for creation of her own art, a modern approach to quilting. Kim’s quilts have been called “unique and inspiring contemporary fiber art that tells a story and ignites the spirit.” In 2019, after leaving Corporate America, Kim sold her first piece that now hangs on the wall of Oprah Winfrey. Since that time, she has embraced and loves nurturing her artist self.   

As the founder of Alexis Enterprises, LLC, Kim brings to life all of her passions.  An art studio focused on her one-of-a-kind art quilts. The Intentional Pause Project, a media, product and experience platform helping women to embrace pausing as a powerful way forward to achieve their dreams. And her line of handcrafted specialty gift quilts positioned as extraordinary keepsakes for self or others.    

Kim was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area, received her BA in Accounting from Fisk University and her MBA from Vanderbilt University. She is a proud member of the African American Arts Collective, the Executive Leadership Council, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Jack and Jill of America, The Links, Incorporated and the 2017 Class of Henry Crown Fellows within the Aspen Global Leadership Network at the Aspen Institute. Her mentorship and community work is focused on issues that advance women, girls, and the arts.  

Kim lives in Kansas City with her husband, Nikki, and their daughter Piper.


“When I was 22, I learned how to quilt the traditional way from my grandmother. That summer changed my life – learning a time-honored tradition while spending time with one of the most important women in my life.   For me, it was a new creative awakening.”


“In today’s crazy world people are looking for unique and long-lasting ways to connect, to be present even when they cannot, and to inspire themselves and those they love. I want to help fulfill those needs.”


“I created #theintentionalpauseTM for one purpose – to empower women to follow their dreams using the power of the pause. I want to equip every woman with the partnership and support she needs to pursue her desired life.”
