Kimberly was born in Ontario, Canada two years after her brother Wyatt was born. Being born into a fairly wealthy family, the pair of siblings never had troubles growing up. In her teens, Kimberly was your typical rebelling teenager along with her older brother, and the two generally began to cause drama between the family. She soon began having trouble making friends in school, becoming overly confident in herself which drove people away from her. As expected, with the lack of friends she took on a shy personality during her highschool years, and began to flaunt her confidence to herself instead of out loud. With her newfound quietness, she regained her relationship with her parents, and the snarky teenager attitude slowed considerably. Her brother Wyatt generally spent time with her during school, as the two were inseparable during their highschool years, till Wyatt soon graduated. Kim worked hard her last two years of school, pleasing her parents and eventually graduating herself. Instead of pursing a generic job after highschool, she slowly worked her way into the Modeling business.
Her confidence was kicking up again, and she began to show it through her work. Within a year she was working her way into magazines, posters, and the like. Everything was just up her alley, and she was having the time of her life. Until her parents unfortunately had a falling out. Ecstatic with her modeling work, and her brother landing a job as a Welder, the two siblings were heartbroken to hear that their parents were getting divorced. Kim's father moved out of Ontario within a week after the incident, but her mother stayed. Kim enjoyed the presence of her mother, as they were always fairly close to one another. Her mother revealed that she had met another man, someone whom she claimed to love. She never stated how they met, but he lived very far away. Wyatt, unhappy with the news of their mother having an affair, moved out of the house and got his own place, going to start his life without his mother involved any longer.
Kimberly, still wanting to support her mother despite what she did, kept the older woman on her feet, even though she didn't really need it. She provided emotional support, and continued to stay with her mother in Ontario. Fairly soon after the falling out, Kim's mother came to her, and said she was going to make the journey to see her new love. She wanted Kim to come with her, to meet him and prove he wasn't a bad guy, that she truly loved him, and so she didn't go alone. Kim reluctantly agreed, and put her modeling on hold. With a considerable amount of money between the two from their jobs, they began planning the trip, to Novigrad. Her mother withheld information from Kim. She didn't know if this man was rich or not, or what his occupation was. She didn't know how long it had been going on. She didn't even know his name. Only that they were flying out in a week to meet the mystery man, thousands of miles away from home.
After much stress going through a few connecting flights, the two finally made it to the capital of Chernarus. Kim wasn't sure what to expect when meeting the mystery man, who had said he was going to meet them at the airport. Would he be fat? Was he old? Ugly? She worried the entire time during the flights that this was a mistake. He met Kim and her mother at the luggage pickup. He was fit, and slightly muscular, with a thick black beard. They both looked so happy to see each other, and Kim thought that maybe they really did love each other. He took the two back to their house, and even had a spare room for Kim to stay in. It was lovely. He was very kind, and she'd never seen her mother happier in her life. They took walks to see the beautiful scenery, he took them on tours. Kim was enjoying herself, and her mother even more so. Little did they know that things would soon change, and that it was a mistake.
