Those who change the world show up! Believe it or not, that's what she read between the lines, when researching the Dog Tag program. She wanted to be a part of that experience. Additionally, if there is a non-profit agency willing to support veterans, she wanted to take plunge to learn and experience what the Dog Tag cohort had to offer. Furthermore, she believes if you continue to wait for the "right time", you'll waste your entire life, and nothing will happen. Overall, staying the same sucks, growing sucks too, but you must decide which you’d rather experience.

Through the Dog Tag Fellowship Program, Kimberly hopes to expand her horizons and explore new career options. She asked herself what does the world need, what makes her come alive. Readied with her impassioned answer, she made the decision to win the battle in her mind and pursue her dream! Bottomline, what the world needs is people who have come alive. For the most part, an idea is nothing unless you execute on it. The Universe will never run out of fresh starts to give you!

Kimberly's favorite baked goods are brownies, or apple and blueberry pie.
