Meet KIMACS New Program Director!

Hello KI Family,

As many of you know, Brenda McKenna has moved on from KI to pursue another career opportunity.  We will miss her very much and wish her the best in her new endeavor!  We are really excited to have Lisa Vare step in and fill the position.  Lisa has been a long time mom of the KI program!  Her two children, Nick and Elise are both junior black belts in the program and having Lisa step in to the role of program director is a perfect fit!  Please feel free to contact Lisa with any questions you have about your program, scheduling, equipment ordering, birthday party bookings or general questions you may have.  Her email is:

Please take a moment to pop your head in and welcome her to our team!  Below is a brief bio to help you to get to know her better.

As always, look forward to serving you in any way we can!

Yours in the arts,

John English

Lisa first joined the KIMAC community as a parent in 2008, when she enrolled her two children. She began training in the martial arts herself starting in the Kickboxing program 8 years ago. After a break from the martial arts she started her study of Kenpo Karate in 2015 training with Mr.Wharem.

Upon graduating from Salem High School in Salem Massachusetts, she began studying book keeping and accounting at Marian Court College in Swampscott Ma. She then went on to hold jobs relating to Accounting and Customer Service.

She currently resides in Kensington, NH; with her husband Nick and two children Nicky and Elise. She enjoys spending time with family and friends. She is very excited to be able to assist parents and students on their Martial Arts Journey.
