In recognition of her political leadership, in 2008 Kimberly was invited to serve as the District Director for California Assemblymember Tom Ammiano, where she spent six years advocating for policy change at the local and statewide level. Among her accomplishments, Kimberly played a significant role in the passage of AB241: The California Domestic Worker Bill of Rights and the California Trust Act. As Political Director for Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1021, which represents over 54,000 workers across Northern California, Kimberly championed a number of critical local and statewide issues that impact working families and continued to grow her expertise in California state policy advocacy. Kimberly was delighted to return to her roots in the domestic workers movement as the incoming Coalition Director in August 2017, following in the footsteps of her colleague and predecessor, Katie Joaquin.
