Kimmy Higginbotham is an actress, artist, and designer from Good Hope, WV. She studied at and received her BA from Fairmont State University in WV before attending The Conservatory of Stella Adler in NYC and The Conservatory at Act One Studios in Chicago. After completing her studies with Act One she made Chicago her home. When Kimmy is not busy creating art in all its various forms she enjoys being physically active - taking long walks, fixing and building things, swimming, and roller skating. She loves camping, board games, sports, the wild and wonderful outdoors of WV, 4-H (she is a life-long member), dancing with no talent whatsoever, singing with little more talent than that, her cat Penny, and all things nerdy. She is in constant appreciation, gratitude, and inspired awe for all of the wonderful teachers, friends, and family members who have supported her. She would like to give thanks to The One, True Actor Niel Patrick Harris through whom all roles are possible.
