Kimball’s excerpt from ENR New York:
Kimball chose to pursue bachelor’s degrees in both fine arts and civil engineering. Following her first stint in college working on high-end residential construction projects as a carpenter and project manager, she found that engineering offered fulfilling opportunities to apply a different kind of creativity. Her project resume includes work on Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s laboratory building, redesign of the public plaza at 550 Madison Ave. and various buildings at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Kimball is also committed to using her skills for the benefit and education of underprivileged communities globally. She volunteered with Engineers Without Borders through its City College of New York student chapter to help lead water distribution and sanitation projects in the Omoa region of Honduras. Also in that country, Kimball led the group in evaluating a new water source for Milla Tres, a town whose existing source was disrupted by an earthquake.
