Kimberly is originally from Silver Point, Tennessee and has always loved animals. From the time she was a little girl until now, she had a variety of cats, dogs and guinea pigs and loved each new furry family member with her whole heart.
Kimberly has three rescue dogs (Nikki, Calli and Max) and enjoys giving of her time to philanthropic organizations across Middle Tennessee. One of her greatest passions is supporting Agape Animal Rescue in her role as President of the Board of Directors since her sweet Calli is an Agape alumna. She served as co-chair for the Clinical Operations Group Caring for the Community Committee for three years. Her passion for volunteerism is contagious and she works to actively engage the Clinical Operations Group (which consists of approximately 400 colleagues) in multiple community service projects.

In her current role with HCA Healthcare, she manages a diverse research portfolio of 75+ projects and manages multiple, extramural research partnerships between HCA Healthcare and their academic research partners.
