Universal Studios Orlando                                             August 2003 – January 2017

                     Seasonal Manager, Prosthetics and Make Up / Supervisor / Make Up Artist / Costume Fabrication
                Upon first securing a seasonal position as a MAKE UP ARTIST for Universal Studios' special engagement events (i.e. Halloween Horror Nights, Grinchmas, Mardi Gras, etc.), Kimber was soon able to establish herself as a talented and reliable member of the make up team, thus granting her a part-time position as a non-seasonal regular employee. It was at this time that she was given the opportunity to continue to showcase her skill applying both beauty and special effects make up for the resort's year round offerings, including "Beetlejuice's Rock & Roll Graveyard Revue", special and promotional events (such as The Today Show), and in park character appearances. After several years, Kimber was promoted to SUPERVISOR for Halloween Horror Nights, where she became an integral part of design and implementation, as well as supervision of the event itself. As a SEASONAL MANAGER of Prosthetics & Make Up for the Art & Design branch of the Entertainment Department, Kimber was able to liaise with the Creative Development team in order to conceive, design, develop, and produce the various make up concepts for 2016's Halloween Horror Nights and Grinchmas events, as well as 2017's Mardi Gras season. The Seasonal Manager is responsible for the hiring, training and scheduling of all make up department team members, in addition to the design of make up concepts and purchasing of supplies.
