To inspire is one thing, but to motivate someone by standing strong and firm on your decisions and doing right by people is what Kimberly Klacik’s motto is. Many woman politicians had once been businesswomen; some joined politics for their fame and power, while some did to change the world. One such classic example is Kimberly. In this article, we will embark on what made a businesswoman into a republican. We will also know about her Net Worth, Age, Bio & More.
Who is Kimberly Klacik?
Kimberly Nicole Klacik is a businesswoman, non-profit founder, and Baltimore County Republican Centre member. She was born on January 19, 1982.

Her Education and Childhood
She was born to Katrina and James Bray in an American black family on January 19th, 1982. She attended Bowie University but didn’t receive a degree because of her medical condition named alopecia, a condition causing the patient’s hair to fall off in clumps, and then she dropped off college.
Her Nonprofit Organisation – Potential Me
In 2010, Kimberly Came back to Baltimore, and in 2013 she started a Nonprofit organization named Potential Me, where she focused on women’s workforce development. Potential Me aims to provide disadvantaged young women tools and ways to envision and cultivate their inner potential and gain financial independence. It is headquartered in Port Covington and had shaken hands with Penn North Recovery and their employment specialist for a Women’s professional wear giveaway. This had set a record of dressing 50 women to succeed in just a matter of four hours.
Following this, the founder, Kimberly, said, “it was gratifying seeing so many women smiling, excited…Potential Me would not be able to house so many suits or accomplish our mission if it weren’t for the space gifted by Sagamore Development in Port Covington. We have a 100% success rate; our recipients get the job, and many are continuing their education with newfound confidence. A confident woman can do anything.” Currently, Potential me is aiming to make availability of oral contraceptives at every pharmaceutical or medical store. It also aims to verify the accessibility of other medications as well.
Her Personal Life
Kimberly is a businesswoman and a politician, but she is a wife and mother too; she conceals the personal narratives of her life due to her political identity today. Kimberly and her husband, Jeff, successfully run Potential Me. By the grace of cameras and active media, the couple has been spending time together at many festive events. She believes in keeping her personal and professional lives separate so that her identity either won’t affect either her career or her life.

Why is she so famous?
Kimberly Klacik got more attention and fame when a video of her marching down the streets of Baltimore to reveal the atrocities at the place went viral. She was seen dressed in a red mid-length dress, walking head high on the roads. Furthermore, she pointed out what went wrong in the county of Baltimore. With her video ad for Congress, she brought attention to the following facts –
- She starts by asking a question – Do you care about black lives? and then she goes on and reveals how the government running Baltimore doesn’t and claims that she can prove it too
- The video shows clips from the actual Baltimore streets wherein the low living conditions are possibly evident.
- It is visible how the destructive infrastructure and abandoned homes are a real problem in Baltimore and how the democratic-run Baltimore is filled with poverty and crimes, with murder rates of 10 times the US average and a poverty rate of over 20%.
- She then goes on and questions the 53-year-old leader of the Democratic side.
- Presence of homicide, death, and indulgence in drugs.
- There are confessions of Baltimore residents verifying the stated facts
After the fame her video received, she stated that she wanted the Baltimore or city governance to work towards improving the living conditions. Her work became successful when then-president Donald Trump retweeted by saying that Baltimore had rodent-living conditions and asked where the developmental fund was going, on which she commented, “ this made my day.”
Her top works include supporting Trump’s economic revitalization agenda, encouraging homeownership, and improving oversight of federal dollars. This video ad brought attention to Kimberly and Baltimore, but Trump did not make any significant amends. She does not live in Baltimore as of now she has promised that if she wins the election, she will be residing on the 7th street
In interviews following her successful tweet, she was heard saying that she is ready to get things done, such amends have not been visible yet but it’d be exciting to see what Kimberly Klacik does with her power as an identity to Republican, will she be gone in the void or will she be the face of changing Baltimore, future will surely tell.
