Hello, my name is Kimberlee Jakobe.

If my life were a movie, it would be rated (R) for the adult language.

Ten Things You Didn't Know About Me

1. My favorite movie quote is from Disney's Return of Jafar, "You'd be surprised what you can live through" Jafar

2. I am a certified mediator with a background in Conflict Resolution. I love to help others through writing, meditation, or simply by listening.

3. I have a criminal justice degree and spent over two decades advocating for individuals with disabilities, the elderly, and the homeless.

4. I'm originally from Georgia. My family and I presently reside near the coast of North Carolina.

5. I saved my wife and daughter's lives with the Heimlich maneuver I learned over 30 years ago in Germany.

6. I had my first job at nine years old. I've been working and paying taxes since I was thirteen years old.

7. Raising good humans is the most important job anyone will ever have--I am blessed to be the mother of four amazing humans. They make me a better human.

8. My youngest son passed away when he was 21 years old. I will never be the same. He made me a better person and challenged me on every level to be the best I can be--I honor him by keeping my promises to him.

9. I am a problem-solver. Every problem has a solution. Solutions are simple--implementation is the real work & where most people lose interest.

10. I've almost died on ten different occasions by ten different causes. I promise to update this number as necessary!

Thanks for reading.

Here is my writing partner, Tilly Elsbeth- she's the best listener in the world!
