Kimberly J. Ward is an avid traveler, having had the opportunity to travel as a family growing up and study abroad in England during college. She has camped her way across the country through the US national parks three times, taken an extended honeymoon sailing through Nova Scotia, and enjoyed the luxury of several cruise ship excursions, in addition to exploring new places any chance she gets. She also spent ten years traveling full-time as a technical consultant.
Though she has written thousands of pages of journals, both at home and while traveling, Crew of Three: How Bold Dreams and Detailed Plans Launched Our Family’s Sailing Adventures, is her first published work.
An adventurer, gardener, and writer, she never dreamed she would live on a sailboat for two years and homeschool her daughter. She graduated with a BS in Marketing Management and a minor in English from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 1990.
Originally from northern Virginia, Kimberly lives and works out of her home on the coast of Massachusetts with her husband and her crazy coonhound. When she is not working on their oyster farm or gardening, she enjoys hiking, cycling, kayaking, and, of course, traveling.
