in Batavia (Illinois)
You are about to read of someone who has never won the Nobel Peace Prize, carried the Olympic torch, or held any world records (yet). Rather, one that has (hopefully) had as much of a meaningful impact on those along the journey as others have had on hers.
Hi, I’m Kimberly and I love where I’m at in my life! Recently married (and still happy), I find that my life experiences have taken me on quite an adventure. From pursuing an armed criminal who had other plans, to joining the very competitive playing field in car sales (a 10-year stint that started as a short term gig to earn $ for college), to the delicate balance of gently ushering innocence into the world with the attributes of a fierce warrior; I find myself mellowing like a fine wine that only gets better with age.
And now, I am privileged to add another life experience (and among good company), as a presenter at the inaugural Pecha Kucha event in Batavia, Illinois.
Truly I have experienced what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I continue to learn the secret of being content in every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I am grateful for all that I have and all that has shaped me to become who I am.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it ~ even though George may judge me by my grammer...

One of our most precious gifts is the art of story. Tim Sullivan and Kimberly Lescelius join forces to uncover stories about the 20 (in their opinion) Most Interesting People who ever lived or worked in the Tri-Cities of Batavia, Geneva, and St. Charles. Some stories are well-known, others not so much. The people all have one thing in common: a significant role in shaping the story of our local history.
