DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION & SUPPORT
"Too often women confuse ideas about our ability to do anything with an ability to do everything. Huddle Up Moms empowers women with a village, because doing everything is rarely possible, and never sustainable. As a mom of two, with a career and a business, surrounding myself with talented, brilliant, and creative women have been essential. This is the essence of Huddle Up Moms and I am thrilled to play a part!"
Kimberly was born and raised on the Louisiana Gulf Coast, but has called Roanoke, VA home since 2007. She is the mother of two growing daughters. Her career started in a laboratory with a Bachelor's in Clinical Lab Science, which she applied to analyzing patient specimens for pathology. Quickly her career redirected towards higher education where she has spent over a decade honing her knowledge and skills in teaching and learning, eLearning, and interprofessionalism. It was while presenting on her work in interprofessional education that she was approached by a start-up in the long-term care market, of which she eventually became CoFounder and CEO. Kimberly's experience as Director of Faculty Development at Jefferson College of Health Sciences, along with her Master's in Instructional Technology and current pursuit towards a Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction, equip her contributions to educating women across modalities in interactive and engaging ways. Additionally, her experiences serving as Program Director for Interprofessional Education for Jefferson College of Health Sciences, Director of Community Expansion for Faculty Guild, and CEO and CoFounder for Elder Care Solutions have provided leadership abilities that feed into a passion for exploring creative, strategic partnerships and funding opportunities. Kimberly is also a local runner, having run four marathons so far. Additionally, she loves to read and express herself artistically by painting with acrylic.
