A large portion of Kimberly’s proceeds are donated to organizations that give aide to the correlating demographics of her projects.
Kimberly is working on a psychological awareness program for soldiers leaving the military and returning to civilian life, with the hope of heightening the understandings of PTSD. She is also working on a video outreach program that educates others on PTSD and helps those suffering from its effects, as well as various other topics including domestic violence.

A deluxe version of her book is due to be published this winter.
Kimberly Mae Nero served in the U.S. Army as a generator mechanic attached to Band of Brothers 2-506th 101st Screaming Eagles at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. During her deployment to Afghanistan, she realized there was no better calling for her in life than to help the less fortunate. She became a writer when she realized the need for help with understanding the Basic Training process in the military while going through the program herself. She wrote poems to help other soldiers in training make it through Basic Training and earn the title of U.S. Soldier. Later in Afghanistan, another soldier, T.J., read some of Kimberly’s work and told her she needed to publish her writings to help as many people as possible. He left for vacation and took some of her poems with him. He came back with written reviews from others he showed her work to. After reading how her work had impacted their lives with merely her thoughts on paper, Kimberly realized he was right. After getting out of the service, she later started the publication process with hopes of reaching out and helping as many people as she can through her experiences and writing.
Born on December 26, 1982, Kimberly attended Erie 1 BOCES in Buffalo, New York for Practical Nursing in 2005. She is a candidate for her B.A. in Psychology through Ashford University within the next three years. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, working out, learning music, and most importantly, spending time with her four sons.
