Kimberly was passionate about her faith and home design. She beautifully decorated her home and was intentional about making sure it glorified God. In 2021, she started her own company, KH Design, LLC, and had several devoted clients who quickly recognized her talent and creativity. She also enjoyed gardening, shopping, traveling, watching movies and long boat rides at Clarks Hill Lake. She loved camping, hiking, Mexican food and apple martinis and spent many hours cuddling with her Dachshund puppies, Nala and Lola. Most of all, Kimberly loved sharing time with Craig and Jackson.
