With a background in sustainability that began over twenty-five years ago, and as the founder of the EcoMom Alliance and ecomom.com, longtime social entrepreneur Kimberly Danek Pinkson is a sought after keynote speaker, media guest and environmental health advocate.
Kimberly’s work has always been imbued with a sense of global interconnection. She is a visionary that believes anything is possible with the right combination of hard work, perseverance and faith. She has proven this so on many occasions.
Kimberly summited the back side of Yosemite Valley’s famed Half Dome at the tender age of six and went on her first Native American based Vision Quest at the age of thirteen. The experiences cemented in her a deep understanding of our global interconnection and a sacred respect for the delicacy and magic of the web of life.
In her work with EcoMom Alliance, Kimberly is able to bring together her wide range of experience across a myriad of cultures in a myriad of sectors. She is one of those rare individuals who is as at ease among a group of scientists discussing climate change as she is among a group of mothers talking pre-schools, or a Board of Directors pondering economics and ecology.
Kimberly’s experience with bringing ecomom.com and ecomomalliance.org to fruition, is one of courage and hope. Her vision has paid off. The organization now has members from Mumbai to Minneapolis and is empowering mothers to create a healthier and more sustainable world.
She has keynoted at conferences such as the 3% Conference, the World Women's Forum in Seoul, Korea, and the North Carolina Women's Conference. As a media guest, she has appeared on the TODAY Show, 20/20, ABC Evening News, CBS Evening News, KGO’s View from the Bay and a host of regional television programs.
Kimberly is equally comfortable in front of or behind the camera and just enjoys bringing together people and ideas who would not otherwise meet. She is inspired every day by her son Corbin, and her nephews Luke and Sebastian. She loves organic ice cream, beach days, snowboarding, and dancing to oldies but goodies.
