I call Asheville, North Carolina home. I believe, like so many of my fellow residents, in support local small businesses and local farms. I graduated East Carolina University with a Bachelors of Science in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations. I am currently attending West Virginia University for a Masters of Science in Integrated Marketing and Communications. This blog is part of my IMC619 Emerging Media class. Visit my website at: http://kimb1124.wix.com/kimberlycoleman to learn more about me and the Asheville area.
Outside of academia, I have been a technology and process project manager, business control specialist and prior to that a web-based application developer.
What gives my life the most meaning is giving back to those who cannot speak for themselves. I am an active volunteer who volunteers with Siamese Rescue of VA, Full Moon Farm Wolf dog Sanctuary and the Western North Carolina Nature Center.
In my leisure time, I enjoy nature photography, cooking and baking, and spending time with my two cats, an Oriental Shorthair and a Snowshoe-Siamese that were both from rescue.
