Having grown up in one of the world’s most beautiful geographies – the Kootenays region of British Columbia, Canada – Kimberley is keenly aware of a need to ensure that the development of unique places not only makes economic sense but benefits the local community, nurtures the environment, and retains the irreplaceable character that makes them special. A personal love of travel underscores her professional career in understanding and communicating the dynamics of properties and places. It has also led to participation in numerous tourism-related projects.
When not on the road, Kimberley can be found spending time in her Canadian hometown and the San Francisco Bay Area. She is a member of various professional organizations including the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and the San Francisco Urban Planning and Research Association (SPUR).
