Kimberlin Brown Pelzer
Kimberlin has spent the past three decades building a successful career in and outside of Hollywood. While she is best known for her prominent role in CBS’s award winning international soap operas, the real-life Kimberlin is far more interesting than the character that millions of Americans see every week on TV. She is a proud wife and mother, successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, two-time bone marrow donor, and a passionate advocate for women engagement in politics.
Kimberlin and her husband Gary have built several successful businesses over the years including a sports fishing and marina rental business, and an avocado farm. She also owns and personally operates her own successful design company, K. Brown Design. Like many small business owners, Kimberlin built her companies from the ground up and now employs over 100 Californians.
Kimberlin entered the national political spotlight as a prime time featured speaker at the Republican National Convention in 2016. She fervently spoke about small business, women in business, and securing the American Dream for future generations. While she was invited to speak at the RNC because of her role as an actress, Kimberlin’s other life experiences are what have compelled her to run for Congress in the 36th district. She strongly believes that the district has not been effectively represented and that her diverse track record of successes will enable her to be a principled and effective, results driven leader in Congress.
Kimberlin and her husband Gary are homeowners in Palm Springs. She enjoys an active lifestyle of skiing, boating, golfing, and spending time with her adult children when they’re in town. She and Gary are also active in a number of charitable organizations and foundations.
