It all started with one mama, Kimberly Turner.

Born a Bostonian, Kimberly has now been a Chicagoan for half her life. She got her start in the hospitality industry…training in the art of exceeding guest expectations.

She has served as a Manager in restaurants, simplifying large opening projects into more manageable tasks; as a Group Sales Director, developing and creating events for club, corporate, or more familiar group settings; and, as a Wedding Coordinator, arranging and managing all logistics to create a stress-free memorable occasion. In each of these arenas, she organized, developed & implemented another’s visions into reality in an organized and efficient manner.

Kimberly graduated from Florida International University's School of Hospitality wtih a Bachelors of Science, cum laude and is a member of the Golden Key International Honour Society. She spent three years working in Western Europe, then moved on to New York, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Miami Beach. Eventually, she made Chicago her home. She has always adapted and explored the environments around her — always learning and evolving.

After having her first child, she wanted to create her own business that would allow for the pursuit of her own dreams, while continuing to do what she loved — organizing, problem solving, task managing, creating visions, and just running about town. In the end, Mama on the Run Productions was created.
