As the President and an owner of Creating Results, Kimberly is responsible for managing the organization and maintaining the focus on delighting clients. 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.
Even at the beginning of her career, when she was a lobbyist on Capitol Hill, Kimberly has been in sales and marketing. She has also worked for Fortune 500 companies. It was her experience working with senior living organizations that led her to discover her true passion: serving older adults. In the senior living industry, Kimberly has been a catalyst for transformation by positioning the organizations she led for strategic growth while driving over $200 million of annual revenue and record profitability.
Before joining Creating Results, Kimberly was Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Lifespace Communities, the seventh largest not-for-profit senior living provider, according to the LeadingAge Ziegler Top 150.
