I studied Psychology. I have a Associates in Psychology, BA in Human Services, BA in Business Management, and a Masters in Psychology. After graduating I decided not to go that route. I stay home with my children and focus on my work outs and getting into the best shape I can. I was watching a show about suicide girls and after dropping 60 pounds I told my husband that I would love to go that career path instead. So since then I have been focusing on getting into the best shape and getting on with the company.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Kimbaly. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I am a very caring person . The type of person that would do anything for anyone. I love to set goals for myself when it comes to getting my body into the best shape that I can. I also am very truthful about everything to everyone.
Kimbaly, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
my passion is to focus on being healthy. Showing my children that staying fit is the best way to go in life because drinking and drugs won't get them anywhere. My aspiration is for my modeling career to take off and be able to do what I love and make money at it. I started modeling by just getting my pictures done for myself to see my progress with my workouts and frankly to overcome some ghost or event from my past.
Who is your inspiration in life Kimbaly? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration would be my family. My husband works all day to support us and comes home; heads to the gym to stay focus and healthy. He is a recovering alcoholic so powering lifting is his healthy habit. He goes in there everyday and lifts heavy and helps me stay focus on myself. My children make me stay focus by being able to show them by not giving up there will always be a award at the end. I also want to show other women that its never too late to start focusing on themselves. As a woman that was in abusive relationship in high school I never believed in myself, so after 21 years I finally started doing that. I want to show other women that overcoming abuse is a powerful thing for themselves and rewarding to be able to pick themselves back up and show that individual he or she was wrong about them.
We all make mistakes Kimbaly, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Model , you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
Since I just started modeling I have none. But from my past I think it would be not telling standing tall and telling what I believe at the time. I use to just go with everyone else instead of being myself. I would also go back and tell the reasoning behind my actions to whatever the issue I was facing at that time.
Kimbaly ,when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Model, how do you go about prioritizing your clients’ needs?
Again since I am just starting I would have to go back to my working days in an office. I use to run a office with 100 plus customers. I would take one task at a time and make sure to always give each customer the best service that they were expecting from me. I never rushed anything with a customer. I think as a professional you have to make sure to sit back, think, plan, and then react when it comes to clients needs to be able to really provide what is being ask from you.
Please tell us Kimbaly, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Model?
I think I would have to really focus on the most important item first and work my way down the list. You have to always give each item, person, or company the same amount of time and respect to be able to try provide what is perfect work.
Kimbaly, please give us an example of a time when you were able to successfully persuade someone to see things your way at work.
I have always made sure a person can see every angle on the situation. You have to provide many options or examples for what you are trying to show someone. One way isn't always the right way so working together to make sure the correct way for that situation is the best way to be able to be successful
Kimbaly please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Model. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share to everyone. What is it and why?
Since I just started I would have to say just going in there and doing a photo shoot for the first time with someone you have never met before. You both have to learn how to work with one another to accomplish the end result.
Kimbaly, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I think every time I do pictures is creative. Every shoot has a theme for me. The first one was to show my progress with my results, have confidence in myself because I have never had that. The second shoot was a personal one that was about overcome the abuse from my past. The dark dress and outfits to a milk bath to wash away the pain and hurt I held on for 20 plus years and the shower to wash it all away. At the end me in a white dress was the rebirth of a new me. The last one was just done in Vegas over the weekend, that one was all about being sexy and proud of the accomplishments I have made this far with my career. It was exciting because I got to put my feelings out there. It was difficult on the second one because I had to put my feelings and hurt out there. I relived the pain that I have pushed deep down inside of me.
What advice would you give to the people who wants to be successful as a Model?
I would say to not listen to anyone. Other will try to hold you back for their own reasons. I would say just stay focus and do what you want for you and never let anyone tell you anything different.
