Kim Bercovitz, Ph.D.

  • Life transition/Wellness coach

Dr. Kim Bercovitz (aka Dr. Kim) is a health behavior scientist, gerontologist and life/wellness coach — on a mission to make self-care easy and accessible — one micro-step, one byte at a time.

With her EAT/SLEEP/MOVE/BREATHE method, Dr. Kim created Byte-Size Wellness® Academy, (BSWA) an online wellness self-coaching program equipped with curated video mind-body micro-breaks; video mini-courses and resources about self- care, healthy eating, sleep hygiene and mindfulness. BSWA includes 1:1 and group coaching for B2B (conferences, workplaces) and B2C audiences struggling with life transitions and time spent taking care of others at the expense of taking care of themselves.

Dr. Kim has a Ph.D. in Community Health from the University of Toronto where she was an adjunct professor and is a former National Cancer Institute of Canada postdoctoral fellow. She worked at renowned Toronto teaching hospitals, consulted to pharmaceutical companies and health organizations, and taught chronic disease exercise classes. Her byte-size wellness® approach is the culmination of her 30-year research career in health and exercise promotion, disease management, addictions and tobacco control.

Outside of academia, Dr. Kim is a Jay Shetty Certified Coach, a 200-hour Yoga Alliance accredited yoga instructor, American College of Sports Medicine accredited pole walking instructor, BoneFit trained (Osteoporosis Canada), and trained in diabetes and older adult exercise, wellness coaching, and mindfulness- based stress reduction.
