Kimberley Blakey

Education Resource Co-ordinator (Design and Development) 

About Kim

Kimberley joined Chimp Management in March 2016 as an illustrator and has been instrumental in developing artwork for the children’s book, My Hidden Chimp. 

Initially graduating from Wimbledon School of Art in 2006 with a BA in Costume Design, Kimberley’s background is also in the education sector. Following her BA, Kimberley completed her PGCE at Sheffield Hallam University and has worked in a number of schools both primary and secondary. During this time Kimberley worked as a teacher in a special needs primary school, working to support children with a variety of conditions and needs. Here Kim utilised the principles of Makaton and Team-Teach to further support the children in her care.

Subsequently, Kimberley completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Therapeutic Play Skills and a Diploma in Play Therapy at Leeds Beckett University, working part-time as a Play-Therapist in primary schools. Kimberley is now using this knowledge in helping Steve to develop educational resources using The Chimp Model.

Kim has a love of drawing; painting; printing and clay, anything creative really! In her spare time, you’ll find her hunting for treasure in antique shops when she’s not building dens and going on adventures with her two young boys.
