Hailing from Chicago’s southside, Kimberly attended Whitney Young Magnet H.S. and then Northern Illinois University, majoring in Electrical Engineering. While an undergraduate, she played D1 basketball for the NIU Huskies and quickly developed a knack for getting people to remember her.
She delved into her entrepreneur side, creating multiple side businesses outside of her engineering career, in an attempt to find her niche. In 2012, Kimberly opened the doors to the company that would prove to be her catalyst into the world of successful entrepreneurship, KDM Engineering. Since then, she has been a part of many successful ventures and looks to continue that success with 1308 Chicago!
