She has taught Asylum & Refugee Law as an Adjunct Professor at Widener University, Delaware Law School from 2020-2021.
Kimberly also represents individuals before the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA), and Federal Circuit Courts.
In addition to her removal practice, Kimberly represents individuals and families applying for affirmative benefits with U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS).

Kimberly obtained her Juris Doctorate at Temple University, Beasley School of Law in January 2011. She received her B.A. in Political Science and Spanish from LaSalle University in 2007. While attending LaSalle University, Kimberly participated in an exchange program which allowed her to spend a semester studying at LaSalle’s Mexico City campus. This experience allowed her to travel through much of Mexico and enhance her Spanish language fluency.
The immigrant experience is personal to Kimberly, as her mother was born in Scotland and she witnessed first-hand a loved one navigate the U.S. immigration system on their own. Her personal experience drives her to be a dedicated and compassionate advocate for her clients.
