Hi, I’m Kim Strobel
Founder of Strobel Education, Motivational Speaker, Education Consultant, and Happiness Coach
I’m also a real-talk, no-fluff, truth-teller…. but I haven’t always been that way.
After suffering from panic attacks for most of my life, I decided that I would no longer be a victim in my own story.
I was tired of living in fear – wondering when the next episode would take over my body and awaiting the terror that would consume my mind.
But I was also tired of feeling alone because I thought no one understood what I was going through.
Through the help of amazing doctors, medication, therapy, and the tools and research that helped me shift my thinking patterns, I started making conscious decisions every day to improve my well-being.
And it totally changed my life.
We’ve all suffered from something.
Stress. Anxiety. Burnout. Depression.
And sometimes suffering can cause us to feel shame.
Shame for feeling stuck. Shame for not knowing the explanation behind it all. Shame for not knowing what to do next.
But here’s what you need to know.
You have the ability to step into your power and unleash your happiness, one daring day at a time.
And you don’t have to do it alone.
My mission is to help teachers and school leaders take ownership of their own personal and professional wellness, so they can live happier lives and get the results they’re after.
It’s time to find out what that can look like for you.

A little more about me.
Served over 500,000 educators through keynotes, courses, and workshops.
Partnered with dozens of organizations, including The United Nations Global Happiness Summit, The Google Education Summit, Florida, Indiana, and North Carolina Superintendent's Conference, and The Stem (Science Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Conference.
22 years in education as a former 4th-grade teacher, literacy coordinator, curriculum director, keynote speaker, and educational consultant.
When I’m not speaking up on stages, training teachers, or coaching from behind my laptop…
I have a huge animal-loving heart. I’ve rescued over 140 dogs. Even though only three are permanent family members, looking after them gives me so much joy and purpose.
I’ve had a standing Friday lunch date with my 98-year-old grandmother for 22 years. I’ve learned so much from her, and I cherish every minute we spend together.
Every single morning I get out and run. I get about 40 miles per week. It keeps the energy flowing and the endorphins pumping!
I enjoy hiking and all things nature with my hubby, who I've been married to for 19 years. We have four kids and three grandkids, and they are just the cutest things on Earth!
Meet the Strobel Education Team
Our consultants are in the trenches with teachers, drawing from current classroom experience, and using the strategies we teach and the resources we provide in our workshops and courses.
Meet Dr. Emma Gibbs
Dr. Emma Gibbs is a Strobel Education consultant as well as a classroom teacher and travels the country sharing her wealth of knowledge and resources with educators about social-emotional well-being. As a trauma-informed specialist, she trains teachers on how to place students' physical, mental, and emotional well-being at the forefront and teaches students self-regulation strategies to support academic success and build relationships with peers.
Meet Dr. Kristie Ennis
