Kim is an amazing and hard working person who has been an inspiration to me for many years and on many levels.

Her background is rich and diverse and her attention to detail in the technology and entertainment arenas is beyond the usual.

She is one of the most dedicated and talented people I know, who has a great sense of keeping up with the latest and greatest technologies... I learn so much from her as one of our Advisory Board Member for World Trust Foundation. I am truly grateful to her and her knowledge, commitment and passion.

Kimberly is an inspiration in the PR business. She really understands how to project image and understands the needs of corporations. Someday I'm going to have to figure out how to help her with that Bahamas gig! :)

Nirvana. Ever want to make a call and never have to follow-up again to have a successful closure? That's what working with Kimberly is like. Be sure of what you want to take action and achieve because you will with Kimberly.

Brains, beauty, grace, inclusive nature, exclusive contact database, intuitive, fresh. sincere, generous and kind.

But enough about me,
and my thoughts of
who Kimberly is;
contact Ms. King-Burns,
work with her and share
the joy of making something
profitable, smart and long term
out of teamming with her.
