Kimberley Burns is Oklahoma Contemporary's human resources coordinator. She is responsible for providing support to the entire HR team, tackling needs such as onboarding, payroll, policy and procedure and assisting with company culture and staff relations.
Kimberley earned a Master of Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma in 2019, where she specialized in both human resources and mental health foundations. She decided on such a degree in order to bring a deeper focus on the “human” aspect of human resources.
In addition to serving at Oklahoma Contemporary, Kimberley is also an adjunct professor in OU's Human Relations department, teaching courses on social justice movements.
In her free time, Kimberley leads an eclectic life — you can find her honing her vocal skills by aggressively singing karaoke, snuggling her stubborn-yet-cute cats (Beans and Charcuterie), casually obsessing over Taylor Swift or clumsily perfecting her homemade popcorn recipe.
Fun facts: Kimberley loves dancing badly, eating noodles and watching horror movies. She hates reading books for pleasure, all melons and romantic comedies.
