Kimberly is a Philadelphia native who began her career with the NLRB as a cooperative education student in Region 4 in 2009. She converted to the field examiner position in 2010 and began to work in the Region 5 office in Baltimore. While there, she spent several years serving as Vice President of Local 5 of the National Labor Relations Board Union. In January 2017, she was named Assistant Regional Director of Region 5.

Established in 1935, the National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects employees, employers, and unions from unfair labor practices and protects the right of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve wages, benefits and working conditions. The NLRB conducts hundreds of workplace elections and investigates thousands of unfair labor practice charges each year. Region 4 serves areas in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware from its Regional Office in Philadelphia.
