Why Kimberley

Kimberley grew up in Kingston, Jamaica and moved to Albany as a teenager. She knew that she wanted a career in criminal justice and her mentor, Bobbi Gabrenya, Professor of Law & Society at Sage College of Albany, pointed her in the right direction. Kimberley truly enjoys being an attorney. She treats all of her clients with personal regard, providing zealous, dedicated, and principled representation.

In her spare time, Kimberley often returns to Sage College to speak with current students, sharing her life and educational experiences which lead to her legal career. Most recently, she spoke to students enrolled in Sage’s Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program, a program designed to provide broad and varied educational instruction to capable students who, due to limited academic and financial resources, would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend Sage College.  She also is on the Board for 4th Family Inc., a not-for-profit organization empowering the community by targeting at-risk youth and adults and providing them with an array of unique personal development opportunities.
