Councilor Kimberly Cook - City of Vestavia Hills
Born in Virginia and a graduate of the College of William and Mary, Kimberly and her husband, Greg, settled in the Birmingham area in 1991. In 2002, Kimberly and Greg moved to the Liberty Park neighborhood of Vestavia Hills. Since then, she has been an active volunteer in our schools and community.
First elected in 2016, Kimberly’s focus has been to improve transparency, communications, and bring a higher level of community engagement to city government. She supports our city’s upward-trending economic development that allows Vestavia Hills to provide excellent city services and facilities – something our citizens expect and deserve for their hard-earned tax dollars.
Shortly before moving to Vestavia Hills, Kimberly left her career as a senior software engineer with SouthTrust Data Services so she could devote more time to her family and community volunteerism. Kimberly helped develop and maintain systems in multiple industries, including military defense, car manufacturing, and banking. As a volunteer, Kimberly helps students through her work as a Boy Scout leader and Education Liaison for our City schools.
Kimberly has served in a variety of leadership roles for Christian charitable organizations – on the board of Grace House Christian Home for Girls and Brother Bryan Mission – and is active in her church, having taught youth Sunday School for over 20 years at Dawson Baptist Church. Kimberly serves on the Jefferson County Republican Party Executive Committee and the Alabama GOP Executive Committee. Kimberly is a member of the Leadership Vestavia Hills Class of 2022.
