Aidee Granados, CEO,
Kimberly was introduced to me and it was the best introduction of my young nonprofit career. From the start she was inspiring, motivating, and task-driven. But be forewarned … Kimberly has a wealth of information to share and you might feel overwhelmed at first. Stick with it. Kimberly is patient, and understands the process. She knows that service is an exhausting business and will match your effort as you go and grow.
