Kimberly grew up in western Massachusetts and graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a degree in English and minors in Psychology and Anthropology. While in college, Kimberly worked year-round with Reader to Reader, a global literacy organization. It was there she discovered her love for teaching and learning. Through this organization, she was able to interact with students not only as a mentor, but as a director, costume designer, coach and even a dying wooly mammoth. Her passion for education and learning took her around the world, and she was fortunate enough to study abroad in both England and Germany during her time at UMass Amherst. She is excited to work closely with students again, especially with such an inspiring organization as Blue Engine.
