Kimberly grew up in Iowa and has lived in San Diego, Houston, Denver, Portland and now the Twin Cities. She is a fan of all the lakes and state parks Minnesota has to offer as she loves to hike and kayak. If she were to move again, she and her 2 daughters would love to embrace their Irish side by moving to Ireland. For now she is content with the meaningful and fulfilling work she experiences at MDA, taking weekend getaways, exploring Minnesota, going to festivals and participating in the occasional mud run.
