Unique ability – Kimberly has a unique ability to see the whole picture.

From scuba diving to skydiving Kimberly loves adventure. One adventure that she absolutely loved was when her family climbed Dunn’s River Falls together in Jamaica. Their guide led them and 20 others holding hands in a chain all the way up to the top of the waterfall. Kimberly was at the front holding the guide’s hand and her family was right behind her. Kimberly said, “It was really incredible to get to hold my family’s hands through the whole thing and watch my kids go from terrified to feeling like they accomplished something huge. Each person had to help the person behind them navigate the falls. It was so amazing because you had to be completely in the moment the entire time. It is something we continue to talk about at home.”
If she could share one piece of advice with the world she would share this quote by Martha Graham, “There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open.”
When she looks at herself and the life she lives, she is most proud of – “Seeing the compilation of her art come together, feeling the reward of seeing what she has accomplished and created.”
The person she would like to have tea with is her coach Leah who has taught her how to normalize extraordinary experiences and step all in.
