WHO: Kimberly is a business and finance attorney at Ballard Spahr, who specializes in counseling start ups on good governance, financings and exit strategies. As both an avid supporter of Philadelphia start-ups and a woman in the corporate world, Kimberly is very excited about the mission of Mama Said. Supporting and celebrating women, mothers, and expecting mothers in the work place and in everyday life is a fantastic initiative that Mama Said will certainly bring to new heights.
WHY WE LOVE HER: Well, it begins with introducing us to shakshouka (trust us, this traditional Middle Eastern dish is a must try). Kim has a little bit of knowledge on just about everything and her generous spirit makes her always willing to share it and lend a hand. Humor and hospitality come easily to Kim and this special woman happily makes space at her dinner table for old friends and new.
ON MOTHERHOOD: My mom teaches and inspires me every day. I hope that one day I provide as much love and support to my children, as she provides to me to this day. We only get one mom to cherish and love. Being a mom -- especially in today's fast paces and high-pressured environment -- can be overwhelming. It is important to support moms everywhere, so that they can enjoy one of the most beautiful parts of the human experience -- raising a family.
