My name is Kimberly Dempsey and I was born, raised, and have lived in and around North and South Carolina most of my life. I was raised in Greenville SC, and received my business degree from Winthrop College in Rock Hill, SC. I have lived in Columbia, Raleigh, and Charlotte, and vacation frequently along the coast of SC. It seems I have always been pulled towards the gift, Ladies’ accessories and home décor industry. As a young adult I worked in my mother’s furniture and gift store in Matthews, NC. Later, I represented a clothing line based out of Atlanta, Georgia for seven years.
Our family moved to Atlanta in 2000 and I continued to work in the industry with a large gift and accessory retailer in Alpharetta, Parson’s. In addition to working at Parson’s, I also worked for many years at the Atlanta Mart showrooms as a temp during the gift and apparel shows. It was during these shows that I came to know the team of Carolina Traditions. I have recently moved back home to Columbia and now have the opportunity to work directly with Theresa and her associates. I am very impressed with the lines that we represent, and look forward to getting to know my clients and helping retailers with their individual needs and products for their customers. Customer loyalty is very important to me and I am very excited to carry on the “Tradition” that Theresa, Miller, and Jody have created of unique products, fantastic customer service and incredible Carolina customers!
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, playing tennis, and traveling. My husband and I have four wonderful children, the youngest of which will be attending The College of Charleston this fall.
