That is exactly what I felt when I started my first Social Media Management course in 2014. In those moments I knew I could help others transform their business through social media.
As I began to explore this new field I discovered my knowledge level, skills, and passion for serving others aligned perfectly with this new profession. Having been a nurse for many years, I understand the need for proactive approaches and individualized support.
This drive to change focus from nursing to social media management came on the heals of a Triple-Negative Breast Cancer diagnosis. In 2008, I was given a 30% chance of survival, and it was then that I began asking myself, “What’s most important in my life if I am to survive?” I loved being a nurse, a mother and wife, but wondered if there was more?
My more became a desire to create in a way that aligned with my values…
In late 2014, Fresh Impact Social Marketing was launched. From the beginning it was important to me to create a business I was passionate about while incorporating the small-town values I'd learned from my Minnesota upbringing; the importance of relationships, integrity, quality services, and fair pricing.
These are the values at the core of my business still today. I am passionate about serving my team and my clients with excellence. Our standards and values have grown as we’ve grown.
Innovation, creativity, and caring for others have always been my greatest strengths. Since the launch of Fresh Impact, I've been using these skills to help businesses grow using social media marketing.
Ever since I was a child, my two favorite loves were learning and caring for others. Now, as an adult, I get to combine my two passion Every. Single. Day.
My ambition to learn is matched by my desire to provide quality services to my clients.
A little about me....I am married to a firefighter & mom of two awesome kiddos. My little family is my WHY! Working from home is a huge benefit to my family and the crazy fire life we lead. I made the switch to virtual professional work after 15 + years in corporate life for the best interest of my family but I also enjoy the work and the relationships I have built with my clients. I love using my skills to help others grow their business and to be successful. When I am not using my virtual superpowers to relieve stress for my clients, I am enjoying a baseball game with the family, dabbling in a new essential oils recipe or planning our next family trip.
As a virtual professional, I still get to contribute to our income and enjoy the work while spending time with my family and it accommodates our busy schedules.
I am an energetic Virtual Professional offering entrepreneurs a chance to leave the to-do list behind. As an entrepreneur, you have so much on your plate. I can rock your to-do list while you focus on your business goals. Let’s work together to grow your business. How can I serve you?

Instagram Specialist and Content Creator
Hello All! My name is Amanda Robb and I help out with all things graphics here at Fresh Impact. I was born and raised in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and am a Midwest girl through and through. I graduated with AAS degree in Media Design Technology and Administrative Assistant from Southeast Technical Institute in 2015 & 2016.
I am an extremely organized & creative person… which is actually an odd combination (but I embrace it!) I like creating branded pieces for clients. It is so important to have consistency in your brand pieces (printed and digital) that you put out into the world!
When I am not designing you can usually find me outside running on our local bike trail, watching football (SKOL VIKINGS) or spending time with my husband, friends or family!
Business Manager and Technology Specialist
My background is certainly eclectic. I have a BS in Human Development, Child and Family Services – emphasis Early Childhood, an Accounting minor and an Industrial Management masters. I graduated with 168 credits when I needed 120. I love learning on all topics. I took many courses that weren’t strictly required because they intrigued me. In a work situation, I want to learn every aspect of my responsibilities and the aspects of other’s responsibilities as well.
I have done many jobs and all of them have provided me with insight and knowledge that has made me who I am today. I have been a library assistant, pizza maker, retail clerk, daycare provider, purchaser, teacher, coordinator, test center supervisor, tour guide and menu planner! I have brought new enrollment system online, sourced over 10 different testing organizations to expand our revenue stream, developed websites and social media strategies, managed employees, bookkeeping and reporting, and there is always something more to learn.
In all of my journeys, I have developed a deep relationship with Christ. I have come to put all other characteristics or experiences by which I have a label to the side to embrace that I am a follower of Christ. This designation drives who I am and what I do. I believe that God brings about opportunities and relationships and that, with due diligence on my part, place me where I need to be when I need to be there. I pray, work, trust and follow.

Words cannot express how much I appreciate Kim! She has been an invaluable member of my support team, building my social media visibility through consistency, creativity, and constantly staying on top of the ever-changing rules of Facebook, LinkedIn and Google. Because Kim has taken over my daily posts, my time has been freed up to do what God created me to do through coaching, speaking and writing. If you simply do not have enough hours in each day to build a strong social media presence, which is a crucial part of any business plan, I highly recommend Kim for your team!

Erin and I are extremely happy with your efforts, the current state of our Pinterest account, and what you have been able to do. We specifically thought that your summary videos were an excellent way of communication. We really appreciate how much hard work you have put into this and your heart. I would highly recommend you to other people.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Kim & Fresh Impact for the last several years. Kim continues to do an awesome job. Kim has helped me get my web page up and going, she has helped me with all kinds of tips on my facebook site. She helped me achieve a lot of new followers and cleaned up my platforms. She continues to bring new and innovative ideas for our online marketing. In addition, Kim takes the time to answer all my questions, plus she has the skills to make you feel like you can conquer anything with just a little help. (or in my case a lot of help). I have learned so much from working with her.

Kim is the social media guru I didn’t know I needed! She has been so helpful in talking through steps and helping me make a plan which has reduced a lot of stress and helped me feel more confident. Her simple explanations are easy to understand. And she is so personable and warm I never feel like I have a “stupid question.” Thanks, Kim
After spending a little over an hour with Kim, I understand exactly what to do to promote my resources on Facebook. She demystified boosts and ads, and gave me the confidence I needed to dive into creating and testing target audiences! I appreciate how she made herself available to me if I need help at any point!

Kim is a FB ads guru! She was able to break down a very complex topic (FB ads) into manageable steps, no easy feat when working with a Facebook ad-phobic like myself. Kim gave great insight as to how to use Facebook to reach a target audience. I am confident I will be able to successfully use Facebook ads in the future thanks to Kim's advice.

Kim, as well as Fresh Impact Social Marketing, is one of the great assets I have as an individual and as a business owner. She is creative, dedicated, compassionate, innovative, and encouraging! She is a great lady to do life and business with on a regular basis!
Working with Kim was a pleasure. I took on a project that involved getting the word out on social media and through email blasts in a short amount of time. I didn’t know where or how to begin. She took over both tasks for and expertly guided me through the process which reduced my stress significantly. Because of her help, I gained some new clients and now know how to these marketing channels on my own! She has consistently demonstrated that she truly cares about my success.
Our small family business is working with Kim at Fresh Impact to design our website, and Kim is doing an amazing job. She works hard to evaluate & develop what it is that we are looking for in both appearance and content/capability. She is also very cost conscious, keeping us aware of ways to keeps our costs down but still having the impact we are seeking. Kim's easy going personality allows us to feel comfortable when we do have adjustments in our design process. She is timely and sends me regular updates so we don't let our busyness keep us from progress. Thanks Kim for your help and working with us to have an appealing and effective website and social media strategy.
