Her talents have found herself singing for the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Cardinals, Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Mercury, Arizona Rattlers and Los Angeles Clippers.  She has been a judge for the Phoenix Suns National Anthem auditions for several years.

Her most memorable singing experience was for the World Baseball Classic against Mexico. When Kimberli is not performing, she loves exploring all of Arizona with her husband and son, Jack.
