As a former dental hygienist, Kimberly spent more than 25 years dedicated to client care and relationship building.  She's held positions of leadership as a regional dental hygiene board examiner, dental hygiene manager, as officers in both national and state dental hygiene associations, an OSHA trainer, and author of four books to date.  One of those books is on the topics of job searching, marketing oneself in your career, interviewing skills, and how to become an asset in the workplace.

Through her work with Dress for Success Billings, she managed the Career Center – guiding, motivating, and assisting the women in that program in both personal and professional development.  Her latest two books are Success Journals, guided journals for women.  They came to life during a professional development exercise she created designed to teach participants that they already have wonderful personal attributes and have achieved successes in life, and that with applied effort, they can affect even more positive change in their lives.  

Additionally, Kimberly blogs on the topics of natural nutrition, environmentalism, and personal development via a character she created, The Natural Girl.

She has over 25 years experience in Information Technology, starting her career as a Business Analyst and later moving into a Senior Leadership role managing large teams, both in the U.S. and globally.

Julie’s desire is to bring her experiences to other women, to help empower them in a way that breaks down any walls surrounding them.  She is passionate about inspiring and motivating women to be all that they can be.
