Kim Sladkin Digilio grew up in the Washington D.C. area where she excelled as a student, multi-sport athlete and all-around Type A overachiever. At Princeton, she studied at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, devoting the majority of her extracurricular life to the top-ranked Women’s Crew/Rowing team. After graduation, she worked for Princeton Admissions and then as VP of Marketing for a San Diego-based company before returning to school to earn her MBA at Northwestern University’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management in 2001. To escape the stress of graduate school life, Sladkin Digilio started practicing yoga at the local gym. She has been practicing ever since, but it wasn’t until her diagnosis in 2010 of an autoimmune disease that startled her to seek a healthier, more accepting, and forgiving existence. She has over 500 hours of yoga teacher training, which included the development of a consistent meditation practice. She currently teaches public and private meditation sessions and yoga classes, all of which focus on cultivating self-acceptance and forgiveness. Her mission is to help others find inner peace by letting go of judgment, often manifesting as the “shoulds/woulds/coulds” and the “not enoughs” that clutter the mind, to embrace the present moment as it is. She lives in Manhattan Beach with her husband Dave ’96, children Alex and Ella, and dogs Gizmo and Luna.
