People of Fairyland
Here are some of the people who make Children’s Fairyland the special place it is.
In the summer of 2019, Kymberly joined Children's Fairyland as its executive director after an 11+ year career at Girl Scouts of Northern California. As a senior director at Girl Scouts, she was accountable for the comprehensive design and implementation of innovative strategies to serve girls, ages 5-17, and oversaw 40 staff members. She is passionate about delivering satisfying experiences and supporting children and their families.
Kymberly is a graduate of Mills College with a B.A. in Political, Legal and Economic Analysis with a Minor in Ethnic Studies. She has served on two non-profit boards helping her build stronger ties to the community. After 25 years in Oakland, she resides with her family in Alameda.
