She is a member of Sigma Theta Tau International, and a lifetime member of the Association of Military Surgeons of the United States. She has been involved with organizations that provide such services as medical care and clean water in Central America, disaster response in the U.S., and local support for veterans. Civilian nursing practice has been in the perioperative field, as a staff nurse, manager, educator, and travel nurse. As an officer in the Army Nurse Corp. Reserves, she served as a Platoon Leader, Battle Focused Instructor, and HIV Educator. She served on active duty during Operation Desert Storm in the surgical department of a U.S. Army hospital. These experiences gave Kimberly insight into the military way of life, and the core concepts of honor, duty, mission completion, and camaraderie, which are fundamental for unit cohesion and individual achievement. She received a Diploma in Nursing from Mt. Carmel School of Nursing, and a BSN from Capital University, Columbus, Ohio. She received a MS in Nursing from Texas Woman’s University, Denton, Texas. As a nurse, veteran, and scholar, Kimberly is interested in the impact of community organizations on the health of veterans and families, and committed to helping nurses and communities understand the unique lifeways of those who have served in the military through translational research. She also has an interest in helping community organizations that serve veterans conduct research into the impact of their programs.
