More About Kimberly:

Kimberly spent 15 years growing her career at a Fortune 100 company. She held roles in business development, account management, and was part of building a new sales division in managed teams with portfolios of over $20 million in yearly sales.

Her career was essentially her baby, and then she had a real baby, an event that absolutely turned her world upside down. After becoming a parent, she discovered a deep passion for supporting working mothers through this transition into motherhood, while also helping organizations retain mothers as they enter into a new season of life with the growth of their families.
