Bio

kimmy1.jpg

Kimmy Higginbotham is an actress, artist, designer, creator from Good Hope, WV. She has her Master's degree in Devised Theatre from Columbia College's European study abroad program where she studied in Berlin, Germany. Her thesis was an integration of visual arts into theatre with focus on human integration of the shadow side. She received her BA from Fairmont State University in WV and certificates of complete from both The Conservatory of Stella Adler in NYC and The Conservatory at Act One Studios in Chicago. Kimmy also enjoys 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, Neil Patrick Harris, through whom all roles are possible.
