She joined the team as Executive Vice President in December 2015 and led our client services, marketing strategists and business development team members for 16 months before becoming President in April 2017.
Kimberly brings our clients a unique perspective due to her extensive experience leading the sales and marketing efforts for numerous for profit and not-for-profit organizations. Her thoughtful, strategic guidance is built from her diverse work experience at all levels of senior living, as well as her innate ability to create marketing and sales strategies that achieve business goals, resonate with mature consumers and build long-lasting brands that have strong market penetration.
