A visionary leader, social entrepreneur and marketplace influencer transforming lives, building dreams and changing communities for over 19 years. She is a new emerging apostolic-prophetic voice commissioned by God and sent beyond the four walls of the church to govern in her Sphere of Influence both in Business and Government. Kimberly’s life work and mission has been eradicating poverty. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York alongside three siblings. Her desire from youth was to overcome poverty by fulfilling her dreams of entrepreneurship to generate wealth. Her journey began in Corporate America after graduating High School obtaining her first employment opportunity on Wall Street in the financial district working as an Executive Assistant. She worked for Fortune 500 Companies such as Merrill Lynch, Shearson Lehman Brothers and American Express to name a few. There she was introduced to the financial industry. After years of working in Corporate America Kimberly got married and relocated from Brooklyn, New York to the Suburbs of Long Island, New York to fulfill the American Dream of Homeownership. Alongside her former husband they were the first African American family to ever have a home built in this affluent predominately Caucasian community. After years of working in Corporate America Kimberly was later called to leave her job to begin her first ministry assignment as a full time stay at home mom in raising her two children. This was a rewarding but financially challenging time in her life. During her financial pit experience she sought the Lord for direction and clarity. This is where she discovered her purpose through the life of Joseph and answered her ministry call leaving the workplace pursuing her dreams of entrepreneurship.
