Kimberly Wilson

Founder
HUED

Kimberly Wilson is a seasoned media professional, entrepreneur and professor. Her work experience has included roles at TheGrio, The Root, Black Enterprise, the NAACP Image Awards, the American Black Film Festival and Think Tank Digital, and most recently, ESSENCE Magazine. After serving communities of color for over a decade, she grew frustrated with the lack of access and opportunities for Black and brown people. This frustration led to founding the healthcare tech startup, HUED — a platform that connect patients (of color) with diverse healthcare providers.

Kimberly is also an adjunct professor at Howard University and New York University. Her classes cover content and social media strategy, advanced public relations, as well as integrated marketing.

Kimberly received her B.A. in Communications from the University of Maryland and her J.D. from the Howard University School of Law. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated and is very involved in her community through involvement with the Precious Dreams Foundation, the Council of Urban Professionals and the National Urban League.
