LOS ANGELES, USA // Kimberly was born in New York and couldn’t wait to return after college to work with buzzy, pop-culture driven networks including MTV, USA Network and Bravo. After 25 years of experience working in entertainment advertising in New York and LA, her focus has been results-driven print, digital and social campaigns for some of the biggest brands in Streaming, Television and Entertainment. Clients and colleagues consider her a “get-it-done girl, with an eye for art direction and marketing trends.”

Kimberly’s contributions on both the network and agency side led her to her current role as the Executive Vice President, Creative Accounts at Legion Creative, where she helped build the integrated/360 division for theatrical, network, and streaming clients. Some of her career highlights include Showtime’s Yellowjackets, helping launch HBO Max and Paramount+, and working on campaigns for iconic IP like HBO’s Westworld, Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, AMC’s Better Call Saul, and The Walking Dead, CNN’s Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown, and Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet.

Over two decades of supervising teams, managing client relations, and spearheading projects have earned Kimberly a number of accolades, including seven PromaxBDA “Creative Agency of the Year” awards as well as numerous wins from the PromaxBDA, Clios, Graphis, Telly, Mobius, Mark, and Davey competitions.

When she’s not streamlining workflows and overseeing creative, she does her best to binge-watch her favorite shows and dedicate time to her passion project, a greeting card line inspired by her grandfather.
