Kimberly Alexander…Philanthropist, Speaker, Cancer Advocate, Media Personality

(Running a Foundation)…”It sounds good on paper, but it is a lot of work!”

Some might look at Kimberly Alexander and judge her life by what she’s lost. In 2010 Kimberly’s husband, NFL linebacker Elijah Alexander, passed away due to complications from multiple myeloma (cancer of the bone marrow). As a stay-at-home mother of two, Kimberly decided that was the time to reinvent herself. A better way to judge Kimberly Alexander TODAY is by how much she has given back.

Kimberly is very active in the field of philanthropy and picked up where her husband left off by becoming an advocate for cancer patients and caregivers, as well as supporting health care initiatives for athletes. She also established KimCONNECTS, a boutique consulting firm that helps create business opportunities for her top-tier clients.

This episode marks my first Guest Leader who comes from the not-for-profit world. We talk about living through an unspeakable tragedy and using that experience to make real change in this world.
