Kim Yesis has a BA in French from Rutgers University and a Masters Degree in Counseling from Marshall University. She has worked for over thirty years as a business management professional including business writing of every genre. Beneath the cover of commerce has ever lurked her alter ego, the student of human nature, fascinated with people as they grapple with change and expose their true spirit and character in the process. In Side by Side: Tales from Behind the Canvas, her debut work, Kim reveals her own spirit and character as she faces a complete and surprising redirection of her life. Kim lives with her husband, Peter, on the coast of Maine, where they enjoy Maine’s great outdoors and art community.
