“Working with Kimberly has been nothing short of a blessing. Her immense knowledge and keen artistic

eye make her an absolute gift to have in your corner. She truly has changed my life, and I’m so grateful

that I have been fortunate enough to work with her. If you are looking for someone who can mold you

into the performer you aspire to be, then do yourself a favor and work with Kimberly. She is an incredible

person, and so adept at pulling the absolute best out of an actor. I feel like each session is better than the

last—I come out of every lesson feeling confident, inspired, and reminded why I want to do this for the

rest of my life. Thank you Kimberly.”

— Joey Gamba, 17, Westfield HS, senior; New Jersey

“The learning and growing never ends with Kimberly. Every single session I would find new ideas to

utilize within the pieces I was working on. Even after I was accepted into my top college, we still

discussed ways in which my craftsmanship could extend through character work and analysis of text. Not

only did I work relentlessly with Kimberly to hone my craft, but I also gained an incredible amount of

confidence by strengthening the skills I had built with her. Thank you Kimberly!”

Alytie Silverman, 18, American University, freshman; New Jersey

“Working with Kimberly was an unforgettable experience. Her in-depth, detailed coaching helped me be

more confident in tackling my auditions and monologues as a whole. Thank you, for all your support!”

— Iris Selmpesi, 18, the drama school, Cours Florent,  and the American University of Paris, freshman;

Athens, Greece

"I worked with Ms. Vaughn on monologues when I was auditioning for colleges, and it was with her

expert help that I was able to get into a wonderful school. I have continued to work with Ms. Vaughn

during the school year to help me audition for different productions, as well as helping me break down

scripts from the shows I have been a part of. Because of Ms. Vaughn, I have learned to trust my instincts,

and my craft has improved tremendously because of it. I would not be in the desirable position I am now

without her.”

— Chloe Sinder, 18, Oberlin College, sophomore; Virginia

"I love working with Kimberly!! Through extensive, nuanced discussion, she’s not only helped me reach a new level of depth in individual pieces—she’s helped me further develop the way I approach my work in general. I’ve only been working with her for a year but in that time, I’ve made enormous strides as an actor and as an artist."

— Avi K, 15, 11th grade, Brooklyn, NY
