In addition to these, Kimberly has been honored with other accolades and awards for acting, producing and screenwriting.
"Kimberly played a supporting role in our movie SUMMER OF '67
and impressed us not only with her talent, but her professional attitude and eagerness to do her role with excellence. She is a joy to work with, kind hearted and pleasant to others on set. She's also a great promoter and loves promoting the movies she's in."
