Black Sorority Project Screening, Moderator
is a storyteller.
Professionally, she has a wealth of award-winning, journalism experience. She’s currently a morning anchor at WBOC-TV on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia. Prior to that position, she reported and anchored at stations in Orlando and Cincinnati. Her career began behind the scenes as an associate producer in Miami and as an intern at Bloomberg TV’s Washington, D.C. bureau.
Kimberly graduated from
Duke University and Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. She is a member of the Alumni Council of the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University.
Throughout the years, Kimberly has been a mentor, volunteered with Big Brothers, Big Sisters and even been the leader of a Girl Scout Troop. She's also a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
She's had the honor of working with a talented group of women for their groundbreaking book, Widowed, But Not Wounded: The Hustle & Flow of 13 Resilient Black Widowed Women. She also published the Graceful Guide to Helping a Grieving Friend. The work stems from her personal loss of her beloved husband, Rasheed, in 2016.
The two met at Duke University. Rasheed was killed in a horrific hit and run. She’s doing everything in her power to ensure other families don’t feel the sting of an open homicide investigation linked to hit and runs.
Kimberly launched a faith-based, retail and grief outreach organization called Still His®. She strives to help widows navigate the waters of significant loss and grief.
Kimberly teaches journalism courses at Salisbury University and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.
