Dr. Kim Everingham

Yoga Adventurist and World Traveler

Self-Proclaimed Bookworm

TOSRV cyclist (twice!)

While she did most of her growing up years in the North Shore area of Massachusetts, Dr. Everingham married into a family with strong Missoula ties and has made this her home since 1988. That was the year she completed her education, having earned an undergraduate degree from Brown University followed by a doctorate in optometry at UC Berkeley. She enjoyed a long career of 30+ years at Rocky Mountain Eye Center before leaving that clinic in early 2021.

After living near the New England coast and then the California coast, Dr. Everingham quickly came to appreciate the beauty of the rivers, mountains, and lakes of Montana. She and her husband raised 3 wonderful children while skiing, sailing, hiking, and biking – and even now that they’re grown in to 3 wonderful adults they remain among her favorite companions. She also loves traveling (especially yoga retreats to Mexican beaches!) and is passionate about reading, listening to and talking about books.
