Kimberly Megna Yarnall is delighted to be a part of the Portola Valley Theater Conservatory, as a trustee, parent, and previously as a teaching artist. Currently the Director of Advancement at The Girls' Middle School, a 6-8 independent school in Palo Alto, Kimberly is committed to achieving the goals of nonprofit organizations through her work in fundraising, communications, strategic planning, and community building. Kimberly has worked in the nonprofit performing arts, education, and healthcare tech industries in New York, Wisconsin, and now in the Bay Area.


Kimberly holds a Masters in Nonprofit Administration from the University of San Francisco and a BA from the University of Notre Dame where she graduated magna cum laude with double majors in English and Theater. When she and her family aren’t biking, hiking, or on a plane to far-flung family, they’re usually at home singing, painting, and playing soccer – often simultaneously.
