Kimberly Blackledge's Summary
A professional and a veteran military spouse now permanently settled in Baton Rouge, I have sacrificed my career to support my husband as he served and protected our country during his service as a naval officer. Despite the various moves back and forth across the country, I worked in various high tech telecommute opportunities, providing accurate, quickly completed, high caliber results for reputable information technology companies and their Fortune 500 clients.
