Kimberly has a very warm and delightful presence. Her creative writing workshop was filled with varied exercises.

The place in which I'll fit will not exist until I make it.

Kimberly enjoys day spas, rose gold, and flared yoga pants. She’d love to use words like harbinger, liminal, and zeitgeist in a quick, saucy comeback. Kimberly trusts in the magic and mystery of miracles and synchronicity, and believes that everyone is creative and has unique gifts to share. She lives in Southern California with her husband and three children.
