Kimm’s Story

Some of you may remember Kimm as a Model of Success from 2012. We’re excited to revisit her story and celebrate a new, and momentous, success in her life.

When Kimm came to Dress for Success Houston in 2007, she says she lacked the knowledge and skills needed to be successful in a professional environment. And, even though she had been working hard in pursuit of her educational goals, having a professional image just wasn’t part of her mindset. It wasn’t until Kim landed a job and received some comments about her professional image that she decided to return to Dress for Success and join PWG. There, she found a group of women who understood the importance of looking the look, as well as, walking the walk. Kimm credits PWG with helping to her develop the skills she needed to be a success both personally and professionally – from better communication skills and her new professional image, to the financial spreadsheet she started using during the financial literacy program and still uses today. But, the big news is that, with the help of the Altman-Goldstein scholarship, she just completed her PhD in psychology. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Kimm Perez!
