I am a trained actress in my late 20's. I have experience coaching many professional working actors. I have worked on audition sides for TV (Law & Order, Narcos, Disney, etc), independent films, big budget studio films, web series, off broadway plays, off off broadway plays, monologues, and anything in between with my students! I teach both comedic & dramatic acting and stand up comedy.

I have been trained by exceptional teachers in the following: Linklater (voice), Williamson (movement), film/tv & theater, script analysis, theater & film history, cold reading, monologue, stand-up comedy, etc. I have also been mentored by the legendary standup comedian Rick Crom.

I can also work with the actor on the business aspect of acting, which is very important to your acting career: how can I get the best headshot?, what things should I be doing everyday to reach my acting goals (some may not even be acting!)?, how do I get in front of this specific casting director?, what events/workshops should I be attending?, etc. We can go over all that plus how to get through personal blocks, fear-related patterns, and other things that may be holding you back from being the best artist you can be!

I believe training is so important to a working actor & comedian so congrats on taking the first step towards a successful, exciting career! I can't wait to share my love of acting and comedy with you!

I have a self tape set-up with a backdrop, professional lighting & tripod. I am happy to be your reader & coach as we film your audition, scene or stand up set. We can use this as a tool to improve or film a self tape audition. We can also chose your best take together.

I am the co-founder of a production company, producing a web series in which I am currently the writer, lead actress, co-director & executive producer (to air 2018).

Amazing!! She's so open and kind. Her technique is great and girl knows her comedy! I'm proud of the work I do with her and always leave feeling inspired. She really cares about her students and their success. Don't know what I'd do without her!

Today was my daughter's 5th class with Kimberly and they were working on audition prep and scene studies. Kimberly is patient, thoughtful, and knows how to provide a safe place of learning. We are so happy to be working with her!

Kimberly has been really great to work with! My 10 year old daughter needed a boost of confidence and emotional support for her upcoming auditions and Kimberly has provided that for her. She is willing to share her tips of the trade and offer her knowledge, skills, and support.

When working in the entertainment industry it's important to have a good team and Kimberly has been a wonderful addition for my daughter.

Kim is a ray sunshine with an added stroke of knowing what she's talking about. Kim has had great training, and it shows that she's an actor with taste and knack for articulating clearly! Kim writes as an added bonus and she can break down scripts to for auditioning needs wonderfully. If you want a professional in the business on your court, Kim is the one to go to.

Session to get to know each other. It seems like Kimberly will be a good fit.

Simply wonderful. Few other words are apt to describe working with Kim on acting. She is a warm and compassionate coach who knows not only her stuff, but how best to reach me as the student. I felt completely at ease with her and was able to access the very vulnerable parts of myself for these auditions without any reservations whatsoever. Plus, the lady has a serious funny bone and is a pro with comedic scenes as well!
I couldn't recommend her more highly for any of your acting needs! I can't wait to find my next audition so I have the chance to work with Kim again!
