Kimberly Ryan is an actor, director and coach who was immersed in the neuroplasticity of performance and rehearsal when her beloved friend of twenty six years, Kathleen, was given a diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment. Kimberly began researching recovery from memory loss, developing Kathleen’s holistic program and advocating for Kathleen’s right to live and recover in her own home.
After stumbling upon the first annual APOE4 conference at the Buck Institute in May of 2015, the forum and its members have become an integral part of Kathleen’s recovery. This community’s resources, information and support are truly a beacon of hope.
Kimberly has attended two trainings with MPI Cognition, three of Dr. Dale Bredesen’s Immersion Programs and has a deep appreciation for the challenge of recovering from memory loss while simultaneously suffering from cognitive impairment.
After growing up in Alexandria, Egypt; Tripoli, Libya; Athens, Greece and Bartlesville, Oklahoma, Kimberly has loved living in New York City for more than 33 years between Riverside and Central Parks.
