Prior to WHYY, Kimberly produced music programs, creating the Public Radio International program Echoes and the documentary series Totally Wired. She earned a bachelors degree in biology from the University of Pennsylvania, and was an M.F.A. candidate in Temple’s radio-television-film program.
When she’s not making radio, Kimberly works for Haverford College, coordinating the Friends Association for Higher Education, a consortium of Quaker colleges. In her spare time, she’s a sacred harp singer, cheesemaker and home canner, and practices pilates and yoga. Kimberly lives in Northern Liberties with her daughter and two pit bull terriers.
