Born and raised in Colorado, Kimberly is starting her 22nd year as a travel agent and her 11th year “on the bus” with Sunnyland. Her parents instilled a love of travel at a very young age, and she feels very blessed to have been able to turn a passion into a career. The U.K., South Africa, and Peru have been some of her favorite destinations. While willing to travel almost anywhere, her next priority is to take her husband to see the Beaches at Normandy. She would love to return to Africa, would like to join her?
