Kimberley is an attorney in private practice, and received a J.D. from Hofstra School of Law and a B.S. in Industrial & Labor Relations from Cornell University.

Prior to starting her law practice, Ms. Spire-Oh was legal editor for LRP Publications’ reporters, bulletins and treatises involving disability law. She has also worked as a mediator, as a Congressional caseworker, as donor relations officer for the Harvard School of Public Health, and as a grant writer and consultant for numerous nonprofit organizations.
