About Me

Professional Headshot

Hello! I graduated from UC Davis in 2010 with a B.S. in biological sciences with an emphasis in neurobiology, physiology, and behavior. I plan on becoming a doctor eventually. I am a born-again Christian who loves Jesus with all my heart. He is the reason that I live and breathe.

Update edit 6/30/16: I recently obtained my Master of Science in Biomedical Sciences from Kansas City University.

Update edit 10/20/16: I got into medical school!!! I was recently accepted into the Class of 2022 at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, MO. God has been so faithful to me these past 5+ years. Never give up on your dreams!!!

Here’s what some of my friends say about me:

Kimberly (a.k.a Kimber) is a pretty rad person. She’s super reliable, loyal, outgoing, SUPER DUPPPERR SMART, and is a kooky cutie pie!! She’s like a Vincent Van Gogh painting…from far away you think you know her but as you get closer, you realize there is a lot of uniqueness and complexity to Kimber and you fall more and more in love with her!!!! – Angela W.

Kim is uber-friendly and always up for a good time. She’s loyal, and she’s genuine in her desire to know you. She loves Jesus and leading worship as she rocks the keys! – Kimmi W.

Favorite Quotes To Live By

I set myself on fire, and the people come to see me burn,

John Wesley

If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.

  1. Hi Kim,
    Congrats on Med School! I’m sure you’re super-busy. But I’d love to pitch my newest release to you for review–it looks right up your alley. πŸ™‚

    The main character is female, from Kansas City, a worship leader with a hunger for revival–but the book is mystery/suspense genre. It’s called HOPE IS A DANGEROUS PLACE, and is now available on Amazon and other platforms.

    Please email me at jimbaton@gmail.com or through my website https://jimbaton.com/ and I’ll send you more details, or send you a free copy in any format you prefer.

    All the best!


  2. Hi Kim!
    Love your blog! I just sent you a review request via Facebook messenger (maybe I missed it, but I couldn’t find a place here to email you).

    Thanks for your time!
