Kimberly Corban grew up in Greeley, Colorado, and still has the pleasure of calling the Rocky Mountain state home. In May of 2006, Kimberly’s life was irrevocably changed when a stranger broke into her college-area apartment, held her there for two hours, and raped her. She immediately reported the crime to authorities and served as the key witness in her attacker’s trial, successfully garnering a sexual assault conviction.
Upon completing her undergraduate and graduate studies in psychology and criminal justice, Kimberly worked as a victim advocate for the Greeley Police Department before creating and running the adult diversion program at the Weld County District Attorney's Office.
Kimberly has been featured on many major news networks including CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC. She often lends her voice to multiple syndicated radio programs and print media including The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Elle Magazine, MSN.com, the New York Times, and countless other online publications.
Today, she has followed her true passion and tours the country speaking to campuses and organizations about sexual assault education and victim advocacy. Her TED Talk “How My Sexual Assault Was Hijacked by Politicians and Lobbies” has received high praise and sparked both timely and timeless conversations about survivors of abuse. Kimberly regularly impacts local, state, and even national legislation to ensure crime victims are represented and protected.
A mother to four young children, Kimberly stays plenty active and has no shame in singing Disney songs at full volume with her kids. Her husband Michael is as fiercely supportive as he is quick to roll his eyes at her “punny” sense of humor. Kimberly hates running yet does it anyway, loves all things that have to do with llamas, is a serious movie quoting buff, and is not very sarcastic.
