Community Manager

Simply put, Kimberly’s role is to help people find the connections they need. As Empowered’s Community Manager, Kimberly is a community engagement expert who creates, manages, and publishes content to create an environment where all people can thrive and improve their lives. She holds a master’s degree from Quincy University in her hometown of Quincy, IL.

Today, Kimberly lives in Tulsa, OK, with her husband Jim, dog, and cat. When she’s not letting her integrity inform her work at Empowered, she enjoys over-indulging her pets and considers herself an amateur UFO researcher and ghost hunter.
