Rotary Annual Career Day, Dr. Kim Capehart–March 22

Kim CapehartDr. Kim Capehart

Dr. Kim Capehart was born on the streets of South Korea and raised in an orphanage until his adoption by his amazing parents Dr. William and Sandra Capehart.  Overcoming cultural and language barriers were just the tip of the iceberg growing up in this wonderful country of the United States in the northeast part of the country.  Dr. Capehart was born with a rare orthopedic condition called arthrogryposis in which many are not mobile and taking one step is a major challenge.  Surgery, physical therapy, hard work and determination allowed him to take that first step.  After that first step he has completed undergraduate degrees, doctorate from professional school, and MBA from graduate school.

He is in private practice in Simpsonville with surgery privileges at GHS and St. Francis Hospital Systems.  He is a full-time faculty member with the University of Phoenix as well as an adjunct professor at local colleges and universities. He is also founder and CEO of an international business consulting firm and finance/real estate companies.  Finally he is in the final stages of earning his PhD doctorate in International Business with an emphasis in eMarketing and Leadership.

Dr. Capehart is an entrepreneur, an educator, a practitioner, and a scholar but more importantly he is a husband, a father, a son, and a human being with an altruistic heart.  He loves to spend time with his family and giving back as he knows how fortunate he is by volunteering locally, nationally, and internationally.

Dr. Capehart is excited to discover what he wants to do when he “grows up” but loving life as he explores the world to discover what he wants to do.  He has lived in the Greenville area for nearly 13 years and has loved everyone he has encountered and the wonderful year round weather.  His motivation comes from a quote by M. Gandhi, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
