NOT ALL THESE FOLKS CAN BE WRONG

I might fancy myself a wordsmith, but if you want to know what it's like to work with me, you might as well hear it from those who already have.

“If I’m being honest, it’s intimidating to even write a recommendation for Kimberly Steele. My attempt at capturing how amazing of a writer, leader, and teammate she is in words would pale in comparison to her use of language. Kimberly was the Copy Lead/Director on my team at Kaplan Test Prep for close to three years. In those three years, she hired and mentored many standout copywriters. Kimberly’s strengths are really being able to nail a brand identity and voice. She’s thoughtful and strategic when crafting messaging, and understands the importance of strong customer insights. I’m patiently waiting for the day I can work with Kimberly again.”

“They say there are some people who keep you up at night and some people who help you sleep soundly. With Kimberly as my manager and teammate, I rarely had a restless night. She is, quite simply, a problem solver. If you need words, grammar expertise, or help defining and executing on brand tenets, you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone as talented as Kimberly. When problems arise at work, you will enjoy going to her for help. Why? Because Kimberly’s approach turns pesky issues into learning opportunities — an exercise in strategy, like putting together a puzzle. Her out-of-the-box thinking is something I continue to admire and learn from. Should an opportunity arise to work with Kimberly again, I’ll jump on it.”

“As a creative project manager, I worked closely with Kimberly in our day-to-day operations on our high-level strategic planning as a team, and I couldn’t have asked for a better partner and teammate. The way that Kimberly translates briefs into copy is unparalleled. Not only do her writerly ways astound and astonish, but Kimberly also takes a refreshing approach to management and leadership. In our time at Kaplan together, she led her team with grace, humor, and tact. She appreciates and celebrates talent, hard work, and dedication.”

“Kimberly is one of the best colleagues I have had the pleasure of working with. She is a tremendous asset to any team or project. A strategic thinker, which is evident in everything she does, Kimberly never misses a beat and always keeps the bigger picture in mind. In the time we worked together, I watched how quickly Kimberly saw where there were holes needing to be filled and went ahead and filled them—even if that meant becoming the department’s in-house expert on adapting our content to SEO. She is excellent at managing projects, and I hope to have the pleasure of working with her again soon.”

“Kimberly and I worked closely together for nearly one year on Kaplan’s national marketing team. Throughout that time, we collaborated on numerous social media campaigns and our long-term blog strategy. Kimberly brought fresh, thoughtful ideas whenever we met, which resulted in an organized writing processes that helped us to optimize our blog strategy and streamline communications with our authors. I have worked with few people who are as skilled in strategic thinking as they are creative. Kimberly’s integrity shines through in her skillful writing which elevated Kaplan’s blog strategy to new heights, increasing visibility and engagement month over month which had a positive impact on the business. I would love to work with Kimberly again not only because of her proven ability to elevate a brand through strategic writing and content planning, but also because she is an excellent team-player and a joy to work with.”

“Kimberly is a thoughtful and supremely organized writer. When working with clients, she listens carefully and asks the right questions. She can break down complex information into simple terms without sacrificing meaning. In addition to her command of language, Kimberly can also synthesize disparate pieces of information into an information architecture that makes sense. She is a pleasure to work with and an asset to any team.”
