Founder of NINE
Kym Ventola teaches workshops on setting healthy boundaries. She recently retired from photography, where she photographed hundreds of couples around the world for 10 years. Her experience of healing from trauma while trying to run a business and nurture a healthy family and home brought her to this place. She worked with therapists, coaches, doctors and mentors for over 10 years and began coaching women individually once she felt healthy enough to support them. This led to her first retreat in Venice Beach, California in 2015. Kym’s intentions were to host that one and only retreat, but the women left that experience asking about the next one. Thanks to their encouragement, NINE continued.
Kym married her husband, Dan, who is a mental health social worker, in 2000. Together, they have a 12 year old son and are fostering-to-adopt a toddler this year.
Kym is based in New England.
