                                                                          After receiving an Aspergers/Selective Mutism diagnosis                                                                              in 1999, Kimberly stopped seeing herself as ‘less-than’                                                                                and felt empowered to write candidly about herself as a                                                                              spectrum woman. Her memoir Under The Banana Moon                                                                                was published in 2012. Kim is now an award winning                                                                                    author, whose writing has appeared in "Firsts,"  &                                                                                      dozens of publications, including Autism Aspergers                                                                                     Digest, Kaleidoscope, and Women from Another Planet.                                                                               

                                                                          Kim, who resides in Connecticut, has been showing her                                                                                artwork since 2005 in Good Purpose Gallery (where she                                                                                led a collage workshop), Hynes Center Cambridge, and                                                                                Lesley College (where she has presented twice), to name                                                                              a few.
