Kimberly has worked with St. Paul’s School – a private high school in Concord, N.H. – as a communications consultant, assisting the school’s Communications and Student Life offices in developing a microsite focused on its Building Healthy Community program. The program seeks to strengthen students' social and emotional learning and relationship-building skills.
The work entailed attending campus events and interviewing students, faculty, staff and visiting experts. Through her work for St. Paul’s, Kimberly sought to convey a teaching and learning community in a time of reflection, learning, growth and change.
How does the school embrace the challenge of multiple points of view among a teenage population only just learning what it means to be empathetic?

As director of communications for Colby-Sawyer College for 13 years, Kimberly led the college’s first integrated marketing communications plan. The plan resulted in the creation of a bold and distinctive visual identity, along with core strategic messages and graphic and editorial standards that were implemented across the college’s digital and print communications.
She was the founding editor of Colby-Sawyer magazine and oversaw two iterations of the college’s website. Her leadership contributed to a more cohesive image for the college, along with greater donor support and increased enrollment of a more diverse student body.

Copywriting is the art of persuasion. It's used to sell products and services or to more subtly influence people's perception and behavior over time. This section features my copywriting in advertisements and letters from the editor, ghost writing for college leaders, and the promotion of an art exhibition.
Kimberly used copywriting to introduce brand new magazines at Colby-Sawyer College and the University of New Hampshire and to assist busy college presidents in conveying core messages to their constituencies.
These forms of persuasive writing spark memories and revive emotional connections to the people and places of the past. They support the goals of college advancement offices, which is to engage alumni in the life of their college; bring them back to campus for reunions and other events; and deepen their affiliations in ways that lead to lifelong involvement in and philanthropic support for the institution.
