There's more to Kimberley than being a supportive TA!

Kimberley likes listening to music from all over the world, cooking, and going on hiking adventures. She can also kill any house plant just by looking at it. So chat to Kimberley about movie and technology news, pet antics, parenting and the Marvel Cinematic Universe… but maybe not gardening.
