I want to create theatre for today, for now, for you. I believe that theatre is a uniquely important form of art, that has the potential to inspire immense impact and change — and I want to be a part of that!
Kimberley got her first musical theatre CD (The Music Man) at age 5, learned what Broadway was at age 6, and never looked back! She mostly grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, with several long interludes sailing and adventuring up and down the East and West Coast with her family (homeschooled weirdos for the win!).
A graduate of the University of California, Santa Cruz, Kimberley spent four wonderful years studying, sailing, and singing her way through her studies. She received B.A. degrees in Music (Vocal Performance), Economics, and Environmental Studies. Kimberley trained at UC Santa Cruz's Opera Department, performing in a myriad of concerts and operas. Kimberley spent several wonderful years in the San Francisco Bay Area, enjoying opportunities to develop relationships with many Bay Area companies as a performer, becoming an Equity member, and working at the arts nonprofit Theatre Bay Area.
Kim now freelances as an actor, singer, teaching artist, event producer, and nonprofit operations specialist. She is currently the Director of Operations at the Voice and Speech Trainers Association, an international nonprofit whose mission is to advance the art, research, and visibility of the voice and speech profession, and the Operations Director at The Dessoff Choirs, one of the leading choruses in New York City, with an established reputation for pioneering performances of choral works from the Renaissance era through the 21st century.
Having moved to New York City in January 2022, Kimberley was immediately was cast in a world premiere musical at Theatre for the New City (a Pulitzer Prize-winning community cultural center). As a performer, Kim approaches her craft with an intense, often exuberant, and honest perspective. When not on stage, Kimberley can be found exploring and adventuring the world — whether by foot, water, or imagination!
