Living in West Michigan, Kimberly enjoys hiking, and downhill skiing, and all the things Lake Michigan has to offer. She previously lived in Punta Gorda, Belize, for a year with her husband and two children (then ages 3 and 1), where she and her husband provided medical and speech therapy services, as well as having a blast enjoying the beauty of Belizean jungles, scuba diving in the Caribbean, exploring Mayan ruins, and best of all, developing relationships with many of the people there. She is excited to be returning to her “hometown” and introducing students to this wonderful country.
