Kimberly K. Robeson is a Greek-American Assistant Professor at Los Angeles Valley College. She teaches World Literature, Creative Writing, composition courses, and is the Co-Advisor for the college’s LGBTQIA+ Club. She lived half her life overseas: in Venezuela, Borneo, Greece, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, and Peru (and has visited another 20+ countries). The other half of her life has been in the United States. Most of her summers were spent in Kamena Vourla, a beach side town in Greece, where her yiayia and papou have a summer house. She has a voracious appetite for travel, enjoys yoga and the gym, and loves to read. Kimberly received a Bachelor’s Degree in English and a Master’s Degree in Comparative Literature from San Diego State University. She has taught English in Greece, Peru, and the United States for the past twenty-seven years. Kimberly’s other passion, apart from teaching, is writing. Her debut novel, The Greek Persuasion, will be released in April, 2019. Kimberly has always been a storyteller like her yiayia, and Greece is always in her heart. She is happy to have found “home” at LAVC and in Los Angeles with her husband, Hugo, and their three bulldogs: Achilles, Oia, and Opa. But, one day, like Odysseus she hopes to return to the Motherland permanently.
