A mother of eight, Kimberly says that the nail industry has been “my rock – an ongoing artistic inspiration that has allowed me flexibility to care for my family.” She believes in the sanctity of a client-manicurist relationship built on trust and also supports helping the NextGen embrace their craft. “Why not enjoy the individuality and artistic abilities of others?” she asks in her scholarship application. Remarking on her inspiration board, she says, “All of these things are me. I am the nail industry, pioneering through social change and seeking advancement via continued education.”
