Brunilda Franco

Kimberlym M. Martinez was born in Huehuetenango, Guatemala in 1996. She has a son who is 5 years old, his name is Alexander. She came to the United States in 2006 at the age of 9 to meet with her father who was living in Morton, Mississippi for 8 years.

She went to Betty Mae Jack Middle School in Morton, Mississippi not knowing English. Thanks to her teachers and friends by sixth grade she was a fluent English speaker and graduated from Morton High School in 2014. She went to work at her local Fred’s store two weeks before she graduated. She was a salesperson for one year and worked 8 months as an assistant manager. She also helped people from her community by interpreting at hospitals, clinics, and even school.

She started working with Elmore & Peterson in April 2016 as a Receptionist. She loves her job, she always wanted to work in an office she never imagined it would be in a bilingual firm helping people like her. She enjoys the people she works with and she could not be happier with her work environment. She knows she will learn a lot and have an opportunity to grow here.
