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

 —Sinéad MacDevitt

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

                                                                                          —James Baldwin


Kimberly left the practice of law some years ago to focus on motherhood, community work, and creative pursuits. A graduate of Stanford University and UC Davis School of Law, she is an Amherst Writers & Artists facilitator and serves on its board of directors. She is also trained and certified by The Center for Journal Therapy, The Center for Intentional Creativity, The Path Meditation, and SoulCollage®. A teaching artist with Hugo House, The Writing Salon, Women On Writing, and The Loft Literary Center, Kimberly has led workshops at numerous retreats and conferences. Previous collaborations include Creative Mornings, Arts and Healing Initiative, The Expressive Therapies Summit, Zest Wellness, The International Women's Writing Guild, Story Circle Network, The Transformative Language Arts Network, and Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center. 


A former editor and regular contributor at Literary Mama, Kimberly has also served on the staffs of Carve and F(r)iction magazines. She holds a certificate in copyediting from UC San Diego Extension and is a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association and ACES: The Society for Editing.


Kimberly’s writing has appeared in publications and anthologies including Minerva Rising, LA Parent, Words and Whispers, Toyon, The Ekphrastic Review, I Am Woman: Expressions of Black Womanhood in America, and elsewhere. Her manuscript was a semi-finalist in Simon and Schuster's 2022 Books Like Us First Novel contest. She writes SleepTales for the Better Sleep app.

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.
