I suspect that Kimberly Studley just might be a real life Super Woman! Let’s be serious, she is a single mom, and ALL single moms deserve high fives, trophies and pats on the back for their awesomeness without doing anything else but the momming part of their lives. But our Kimberly takes it many steps further: 20 years at Marquis Software, a successful side business with Arbonne, and an amazing dedication to her volunteer work with the Junior League of Tallahassee, in addition to loving on her kiddos Jacob and McKenzie with a renewed passion since 2020 forced us all to re-examine our home-work balance. Let’s get to know more about Super Kimberly!
1. Tell us in a few sentences what you do. And why you do it.
I have been working at Marquis Software for over 20 years. Working for a WONDERFUL company that supports my personal and my professional dreams has been an amazing experience for me. When I am not working I support the Junior League of Tallahassee, by volunteering on the Capital City Youth Services (CCYS) committee. CCYS provides guidance, shelter and support to youth and families in the Big Bend area. In my free time, I work my Arbonne business because I believe in their company culture and my success from my business allows me to volunteer more time and money. I have two children, Jacob and McKenzie that are the LOVES of my life.

3. When I wake up in the morning the first thing I do is…
I thank God for another day to fish and love on the kids.

I would say that woman do not accidentally fall into a sucessful corporate job. Woman wanting to be successful in the corporate world need to get out of the comfort zone and ask to take on complex roles.
5. My professional goal for 2021 is…
…donate more money and time to organizations in my community.
6. Supporting women in business is now more critical than ever. How can our community best support you?
I like the idea of #SeeHerSoar highlighting women’s successes. I like to participate in women organizations that promote and support other women.

15. 2020 taught me…
That I need to spend more time with the kids. Working from home has allowed me to be home when the kids leave and return from school which makes me feel more connected. 2020 was the year that I think I realized that I need to start dating again, but I seem to have more success professionally.
Kimberly has a real passion for supporting the youth and families in her community through both her volunteer work with the Junior League of Tallahassee and Arbonne’s financial support of youth homeless organizations to improve mental health. Most of her Arbonne income gets donated directly back into the community, which just again goes to show how amazing Kimberly is. Thank you for all you do every day to be awesome!
