Kimberley believes we can all live more positively. Today you’ll find Kimberley hosting empowerment retreats all over the country. Her retreats focus on balance and wellness not only for moms but for all women striving to find that perfect mix of mindfulness and empowerment. Kimberley states, “We all need to be reminded to live the journey and stop blocking it. Many who are starting to awaken find that sharing their miraculous story is part of the journey. I am here to give others hope that there are unique paths to healing and authentic bliss. And when you feel full of life and radiant energy, you know it’s got to help the community and the world at some level. If I can do it, you can do it.”
For the last 10 years Kimberley has launched a national campaign to help American parents be all that they can be in order to give their children a healthy and fair start. Her original webshow TheGoToMom.TV, which was launched in 2008, has captured one of the largest growing niche audiences — parents who want to parent more consciously and mindfully, through professionally produced yet authentic and real educational videos.
From 2001 – 2011 Kimberley was the Social Marketing Director for a Los Angeles based Early Childhood Mental Health Campaign (Project ABC) funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services (SAMHSA). Kimberley authored the award winning book, “My Feelings Activity book” for project ABC. The ECCO award is the Excellence in Community Communications and Outreach (ECCO) Recognition Program. To highlight and celebrate innovation and creativity in communications and social marketing, SAMHSA sponsors the annual ECCO Recognition Program. Recognized by the National Association of Government Communicators with a Blue Pencil Award, this popular program provides an opportunity for system of care communities to submit materials and initiatives related to communications and community outreach.
Kimberley is married and lives in Los Angeles with her two fabulous little boys and five lovable rescue pets.
