Prior to Brandman, Kimberly joined a traveling coast of performers as a lead singer/dancer and embarked on a whirlwind tour of the world where, among many highlights, she sang for Pope John Paul II in The Vatican.
After studying performing arts at New York University, she entertained thousands as the director of entertainment for Club Med traveling from exotic vacation spot to exotic vacation spot choreographing and performing to the delight of guests young and old.
