At Smile Network we believe passionately in the power of words and stories to change lives. In listening to and experiencing someone else’s story, we often find contained in their stories the answers to or own questions. Meet the people who bring stories to life.

Kim Valentini

Founder Smile Network International

In 2003, Kim Valentini stepped away from a career as a high-powered corporate executive to evaluate what was missing in her life. Fueled by a desire to find meaning and to be a voice for people who didn’t have one, she launched a “small service project’ which would quickly become a global force in the medical arena. 14 years and 144 passport stamps later, Kim’s project, Smile Network International, has resulted in 80 surgical missions on five continents and more than 3,500 children have received the gift of life-altering surgeries.

Kim travels the world speaking to corporate and civic organizations, educational institutions and leadership conferences. The stories of her life experiences inspire audiences to dream big, take risks and to listen to that little voice inside of yourself to identify your true purpose. Attendees laugh and cry in equal measures, always walking away inspired and motivated by the lessons they’ve learned.
