Kimber is passionate about privacy, encryption, and building user-driven technology for the public. She joined Truss after serving at 18F, an office of federal employees that collaborates with other agencies to improve how government serves the public through technology. She also served six years as a Mission Information Specialist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center securing instrument and ground systems in complex laboratory environments.

Kimber is active in the security community, with particular interests in vulnerability disclosure, bug bounties, and bridging the gaps between government, private organizations, and security researchers.

In her spare time, Kimber developed and maintains the framework for Mock Interview and Resume Review (MIRR) Workshop, a project that partners mentors with mentees from underrepresented communities who are un/underemployed in tech and seeking opportunities for professional development. She also enjoys designing and building PCB-based electronic projects. Kimber is an avid admirer of Chiroptera, comic books, and video games.
