Why you’re a Q U I N K E N Z O Fly Mommie…
Kimmie is fly because she is beautiful, smart, resourceful, giving, funny, strong, loving, has the most beautiful eyes and locks of curls. She likes to have fun with color and her clothes and knows what works for her. But probably one of the biggest reasons she’s so fly is because she fought and overcame breast cancer with such strength, conviction and grace which ultimately led to her calling…health and fitness. Love this woman!!
