Kimberly was born and raised in Northern Virginia where she attended George Mason University and graduated with a BA in English. Her professional career in animal care began 20 years ago when a stray dog wandered into her yard and she took it to a local animal shelter in the hopes of reuniting him with his owner. Since that time, Kimberly’s passion for animal welfare grew stronger as her experience and knowledge became more diverse. Kimberly has held just about every job there is at an animal shelter – Animal Caretaker, Animal Control Officer, Deputy Chief of Animal Control, Volunteer Coordinator, Adoptions Manager, and as Shelter Director for a high-volume shelter in Washington, D.C. Kimberly has also worked at The Humane Society of the United States where she was the Animal Sheltering Manager; a position where she focused on creating best practices for animal shelters across the nation. After her son was born, she worked at an emergency veterinary hospital as both a client care representative and nursing assistant in the ICU/Critical Care Department.
Kimberly recently moved to Chatham County with her husband, son, and two dogs; Henry, a boxer and Lucy, a pitbull mix. In her free time she enjoys watching her son play baseball, spending time with friends and doing just about anything outdoors.
