She went on to earn her BA in Psychology and MA in Counselor of Education; Community Mental Health. She is also a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and has worked with children of all ages as well as adults. Kimberly thoroughly enjoyed additional experience as an Accessibility Consultant supporting people with accommodations at the University of Central Florida.

Her main objective is to provide character based books that support young learners by creating an optimal learning experience through story and song. The inspiration to create My Little Cupcake came from her vivacious and sweet daughter Olivia Daisy who absolutely loves storytelling and books.
