While stage managing many of the mainstage productions at the University of
Florida, Kimberly became fascinated with the process of an actor attaining a role.
She sat in every audition right alongside the director—hearing his thoughts and
reactions to the talent at hand. This was the beginning of her journey into casting!
After her junior year of college, Kimberly spent the summer in New York City
interning for renowned Broadway casting director Tara Rubin. Post graduation, she
moved right back up to the city to intern for casting powerhouse, Bernard Telsey
of Telsey + Company casting. Later, as the commerical casting apprentice, she ran
sessions for such companies as Apple, Macy’s, and Target. When the city life kept
her too far from family and loved ones, Kimberly decided to make the big move back
to her home town of Atlanta to take part in the huge television and film industry
boom of the Southeast. She could not be more thankful for the Fincannons in taking
a chance on her casting chops!
