About

Write. Revise. Repeat.

My name is Kimberly, but most people call me Kim. After graduating from undergrad in Augusta, Georgia, with a degree in English, I decided I wanted to live in North Carolina because I thought the weather would be nicer. (A Georgia summer is brutal.)

I landed a part-time job in Charlotte at the alternative newsweekly Creative Loafing. I worked my way up the ladder, holding a variety of positions with that company, from covering fashion and nightlife to managing production and social media. Along the way, I managed to finish my masters in English. Eventually, someone thought it was a good idea to make me the top editor of that newspaper, a job I loved until I loved it no more. After three years in that position, I returned to my hometown to work for myself as a freelance writer and editor.

Nowadays, when I'm not writing for a handful of local publications, I'm teaching at the nearby college (my alma mater, in fact). I live with my boyfriend and our 8-year-old pom-huahua Roxy and 9-year-old min-pin Cuzin -- we all like to watch Modern Family together.

Other fun facts: My desk chair is hot pink, and I might be a pen hoarder.

Work Terms

My hours are flexible. Depending on the project, my turnaround is 24 to 48 hours. My preferred method of communication is via email, but phone conversations are not off the table.
