"I had the pleasure of working with Kimberly at Asurion in various capacities. Kimberly is a highly energized, passionate, and thoughtful DEI and talent management leader. Kimberly is a subject matter expert on all things DEI. She is a team player who always looks out for the best interests of her team and colleagues. Kimberly is very comfortable and collaborative in a team setting and her laughter and attitude are infectious to those who have worked alongside her!" -Ryan Nolan, Procurement Leader
"I had the pleasure of working with Kimberly in her role supporting our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) efforts over many years. Kimberly brings great patience and understanding to corporate culture and the important fundamentals of employee awareness and drivers for DEI. Her impact in all areas of DEI, including the creation of training programs, to the direct influence over Asurion’s LGBT community involvement, to being a great sounding board to executives for questions and ideas was instrumental in Asurion’s focus on DEI." -Barry Vandevier, Chief Operations Operator at Asurion
I worked with Kimberly for over 4 years in her role leading Diversity & Inclusion programs at Asurion. During this time Kimberly was responsible for developing, planning and executing programs to drive increased diversity in Asurion's workforce, and building an inclusive culture that harnesses the power of our diverse workforce.
The Asurion product organization was an early adopter of the D&I programs Kimberly led, giving me the opportunity to work closely with her on programs such as, training hundred's of product people leaders on mitigating unconscious bias, restructuring our recruiting process to ensure diversity of candidates and 100% diverse interviewer panel. Kimberly was also the leader who developed and launched our apprenticeship program which created a training and education path for hourly call center and supply chain employees to become software developers.
Throughout my time working with Kimberly she demonstrated incredible passion for making D&I a competitive advantage for Asurion, she work diligently to understand the business needs and to ensure D&I programs were aligned with and drove the business goals, and she demonstrated the managerial courage required to drive change at scale.
Kimberly was also the person who helped established Asurion's 11 Employee Resources Groups which have thousands of members and are at the core of Asurion's efforts to foster a diverse and inclusive workforce. Kimberly is an authentic leader that combines her passion for D&I with an understanding for the business and a drive for results." - John Leonard, Senior Vice President of Product
"Kim is the best. You can stop your search here. I've worked with Kim at least 4 times over the years on resume catch up/clean up, coaching, job search, and LinkedIn face-lifts. Working with Kim is like picking up the phone and calling a good friend you haven't spoke to in a few years but you always pick right back up where things left off. I greatly appreciate the quick turnaround and attention to detail. She helped me get the job twice and looking forward to future catch ups. Thanks again Kim!" - Matt Campbell, Senior Manager of Sales Incentive Strategy
"Kimberly is a GENIUS at what she does and she truly cares about every client she works with! I had grown frustrated with the job search and not receiving any calls on the countless positions I had applied for. I knew that my resume was not highlighting my skills and experience in the most beneficial way, and I needed expert help. I reached out to Kimberly and had the absolute best experience with her, from start to finish. She spent time on the phone getting to know about me and my previous experience and really helping me hone into my future career path. She immediately revised my resume, helped me with a cover letter, and my LinkedIn profile. As soon as I started to send out my new resume, the calls and interviews started to come in. Within a month I had received multiple offers from companies like Amazon and Asurion! Working with Kimberly has been the best choice I have ever made in my career journey!! Thanks to her I accepted an offer with Asurion for a Senior Digital Marketing Specialist position!" -Hector Cruz, Communications Senior Manager
"I’ve had the honor to work with Kimberly over the past 2+ years at Asurion in the DEI space. Kimberly has such a passion for DEI work and was able to support making game-changing shifts to our diversity recruiting. The Certified Interviewer program she build has helped remove bias from our interview process and raise bias awareness across thousands of hiring managers. She is a leader and a do-er. She leads a team for diversity recruiting and program managers to increase diversity in our talent pipelines. She has been instrumental in developing and launching our diverse slate and panel requirements and reporting. She has a knack for developing people, finding their strengths, and aligning with their career goals. She is also a leader outside of her roles with our ERG community leading PRIDE. I have learned so much about DEI from Kimberly and enjoy our interactions. She brings the passion and the "get it done" energy to her work!" - Brittany Sever Stone, Senior Director

"Hi Kimberly, Last fall after we met I e-mailed you to say that I was offered an interview for a grant writer position as a result of that first resume I sent out. Well, the timing was wrong but I took your advice and once I arrived in Nashville I e-mailed the supervisor to let her know that I had moved, and to keep me in mind for future openings. Lo and behold she contacted me earlier this month with an opening, I had an interview and got a written offer yesterday! I am beyond thrilled, especially since it is very close to my apartment." - Carol Freeman, Grant Writing
"Kimberly was an excellent source for helping me revamp my resume and cover letter to make the next step in my career. After hearing of the great success that some of my friends were having in their careers after coaching from Kimberly, I knew SHE was the one to call when I was ready to take that leap. It's always hard to write concisely about what you actually bring to the table, but having such a great in-depth conversation and the negotiating of what is and isn't important for recruiters to know about you and your accomplishments with her made the process a breeze and was truly eye-opening. I can't wait to work with Kimberly again once I'm ready to take an even larger step in my career!" -Desiree Duncan, Vice President of Health, Equity, and Inclusion

Kimberly has that unique personality that knows no strangers and needs no introduction. She was able to help managers assess team needs, identify roadblocks and assist in the development of structure to build stronger teams and promote cross-functional collaboration in a swift and efficient manner. Kimberly knows how to put “first things first” and build from the base. Kimberly is a true leader who enjoys developing leadership.

Her situational analysis skills are comprehensive and her recommendations concise and on-target. Kimberly instills trust and confidence in every situation, individual or team, and her work involves all components of the planning and evaluation cycle. She is a great role model.
