Kimberly Terrill

Associate Director, Career Education and Development

Kimberly Terrill (she/her) is the Associate Director for Career Education and Development at the UCLA Career Center where she works with an amazing team to support and guide students in reaching their career goals. Kimberly’s own career journey was long and filled with uncertainty. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree from Scripps College, Kimberly had difficulty finding her ideal career. Kimberly’s winding path of career discovery, along with a love of learning, eventually led her to a Master of Arts degree at Claremont Graduate University, after which she took a job at a local university and fell in love with higher education. She then earned her Ph.D. in Higher Education from Azusa Pacific University and continued to pursue her passion for working with students by joining the UCLA community. Kimberly has been employed in higher education for 20 years and has extensive experience in career counseling, career development, and education. She has designed and taught numerous career development courses for both undergraduate and graduate-level students. Kimberly’s favorite quote is “Students don’t care what you know until they know you care.” At home, she is probably hanging out with her cats: Ollie and Fluff Muffin.
