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 grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, performing at the Sunnyvale Music School in between living and cruising with her family on their sailboat. After returning from several years of sailing up and down the East Coast, Kimberley was involved in choir, jazz choir, musical theatre and the Peninsula Youth Sailing Foundation (PYSF) sailing team (as her one non-arts life-passion!) through high school.
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 a BA in Economics/Environmental Studies and a BA in Music (Vocal Performance). Kimberley trained at UC Santa Cruz's Opera Department, studying voice with Patrice Maginnis and Greta Feeney. She also worked with Michael McGushin, Nicole Paiement and Brian Staufenbiel for four years on a myriad of concerts and operas.
Kimberley returned to the Bay Area after graduating from UC Santa Cruz, and now works as the Programs Coordinator at Theatre Bay Area in San Francisco during the day; enjoying opportunities to develop relationships with Bay Area companies, write exciting theatre journalism, and work to promote and advance the San Francisco Bay Area theatre community. In her spare time, Kimberley loves to read, travel, sail and find new adventures!
