About Kimberly

After a dysfunctional childhood living in poverty, Kimberly became a CEO and highly regarded community leader by the age of 26 years. Two years later her employee committed major fraud, and then died by suicide. While struggling with PTSD, Kimberly rebuilt the organization into a powerhouse, only to be fired when she stood up to harassment. During the 7-year legal battle that followed, she lead an award-winning oral history project at the same time that her husband became terminally ill. She also made a political run 30 years in the making, only to finish in second place. After working with medical teams across Canada to extend her husband’s life another 7 years, he passed away on November 6, 2021.

2022 was Kimberly’s most successful year in business, at the same time that she was reeling from grief and caregiver burnout, and a little thing called a pandemic! How?
