    Kimberly Simmons
    Fundraising Coordinator
    Fibromyalgia Warrior


    Kimberly Simmons is a communication and writing professional with more than 20 years of experience developing and editing a broad range of technical documentation and corporate communications materials e.g., standard operating procedures, user and training manuals, and quick reference guides.  Kimberly is also a certified fitness professional with 26 years of experience teaching group exercise classes, something she began during her senior year at Towson University. Over the years, she has earned several national certifications and licenses in group exercise, personal training, Spinning®, Zumba Fitness, Aqua Zumba®, and MixxedFit. These days, rather than teaching, Kimberly uses her passion for health and wellness to plan, promote, and participate in special events and fundraisers that raise awareness for conditions that are relevant to her and her community.

    Kimberly was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in May 2017. She says that she really didn’t ask her doctor too many questions at the time because she felt relieved to finally have a diagnosis after visiting multiple doctors for years. She considers the Social Butterflies Foundation to be a “safe place” for people like her and is extremely thankful to have the support group members as a listening ear and a resource because no one else can truly understand like other warriors can. Kimberly is a proud wife of nearly 23 years and a proud mother of an 18 year-old son and a 16 year-old daughter, born two years and two days apart.
