YOU GET A
Kimberly is not daunted by hard work or the odds, if she's fighting for something she knows is right. She also knows that for many of the really important things, it takes a team.
Kimberly was born in Seoul, South Korea, and grew up in Reston, Virginia. Her dad worked at the U.S. Department of Defense and her mom owned a coffee shop. Kimberly went to West Point, then, transferred to Harvard College, where she studied economics. Her first job was at Salomon Brothers; her most exciting job was as a reporter in Hong Kong for the Wall Street Journal; her hardest job was in the kitchen at Wallse restaurant in NYC; and her most rewarding job is being a wife and mom.

YOU GET A PRINCIPLED FIGHTER
Kimberly loves the Declaration of Independence. It animates the spirit of our country. It acknowledges that we each have a natural right to live our lives, be free to make our own choices, and pursue the things that give ourselves purpose and meaning. It protects the smallest minority, the individual.
As free people with limited government in its proper role, we achieve more and become better. Reagan said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction." Over-taxed and over-regulated, the residents of Connecticut must stand up for our right to thrive and to flourish. Connecticut families should be able to build fulfilling and enriching lives here for themselves and the next generation.
Kimberly fights for your sake and hers.
