My CSTA Story

Kimberly joined the CSTA team in January 2021 with a personal mission to work alongside her colleagues in creating a safe and equitable space for educators. Although she didn’t have the opportunity to take CS classes during the course of her own education, Kimberly understands and appreciates the value that CS teachers bring to their students, both in and out of the classroom. In addition to corresponding with members and getting to know many of them on a personal level, what Kimberly enjoys most is managing the CSTA Awards program and seeing firsthand how CS teachers and students impact their communities.

My Story

Kimberly is the senior membership & volunteer coordinator for CSTA. She developed a decade-long career in the hospitality industry with most of her time spent at the Walt Disney World Resort, where she gained extensive experience with guest and member correspondence, along with a passion for providing excellent service and helping others. She is excited to bring her correspondence and project management skills to CSTA, where she serves as the awards liaison and manages member relations needs.

In her free time, Kimberly enjoys spending time with her partner and their three dogs, tending to her indoor and outdoor gardens, researching sustainable living practices, and enjoying all things Disney.
