Kim Freidah, Ph.D.

Kim Freidah serves as bilingual psychologist at Gallego Intermediate Fine Arts Magnet School in the Sunnyside Unified School District. A native of Sag Harbor, Long Island, she moved to Tucson in 1984 to begin her doctoral program at the University of Arizona School Psychology program. After four years as bilingual school psychologist with Sunnyside, she wanted more immersion in Latino cultures and took assignments in community development and higher education in Tamaulipas, Mexico and later Managua, Nicaragua. After 18 years abroad, she returned to Tucson and Sunnyside in 2010. She enjoys being involved with Southside Presbyterian Church, Sonoran Spa HOA, Southern Arizona Psychological Association and TMSC. She appreciates the strong connection with Mexico, where she has permanent residency, and travels to Puerto Peñasco or Ensenada whenever possible. Kim enjoys that her two adult children and two grandchildren live in Tucson now. She loves to sing, play guitar, swim, kayak, laugh, and have fun.
