She doesn't follow rules but follows dreams. Graduated from NUS with an atypical bachelor degree with honours in Theatre Studies, Kimberley thrives on the imaginative, the dynamic and occasionally the unorthodox. Helming projects and a few years of work dealing with the front end in the service industry has led her to emphasize soft skills in effective communication both as a leader and a teamplayer. She also makes a habit of being efficient and delivering set objectives, sometimes before you expect it.
She started out her career in human resources and talent acquisitions in multiple MNCs like Deloitte, KPMG and Cycle & Carriage. After a few years, she decided it's time to pursue her interest in communications. She doesn't like to be restricted by rules and prefers to be in the background, quietly observing. Currently doing a double degree in Journalism and Public Relations has helped in her writing skills. She would rather be sipping coffee in a quiet cafe on any given day.
