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. Her professional interest in analyzing properties and places is linked to a personal love of travel, and has spurred participation in numerous tourism-related initiatives.
