Kimberly Greenwell, home expert and face of the popular television show My Southern Home, is known for her love of educating and inspiring homeowners to create their dream spaces.

If you ask her how she founded her television show, she will tell you it found her. After working in television for over ten years, she had to start over. Kimberly was one of many who lost her job during the recession in 2008 and 2009. She started her company, KAG Media Consulting, helping businesses with marketing and public relations.

Her first client was the Home Builders Association of Greater Louisville. Kimberly became the publicist for the home-related shows they produced: Home Garden and Remodeling, Homearama, and Tour of Remodeled Homes.

In 2015, a local television station asked Kimberly if she would produce and host a home-related television show. Little did she know this opportunity would be life-changing for her and open doors that she could never imagine.

In 2017, Kimberly went out on a limb and created My Southern Home. The program was so well received that Barber Cabinet Company asked her to expand to Nashville. One year later, Kimberly launched the first season of My Southern Home in Middle

This month, Kimberly will air her twelfth season of the television show in Middle Tennessee and her fourteenth and final season in Louisville. After seven years of living in Louisville, and Nashville, and twenty-seven seasons of My Southern Home, she has decided to call one place home. Kimberly decided to leave Louisville, her home for over twenty years, and immerse herself in all things real estate here in Middle Tennessee.

"The decision to leave Louisville is bittersweet. It has been my home for over twenty years and where My Southern Home began. It was time to slow down and call one place home, and I knew that place needed to be Nashville."

In January of this year, Kimberly passed her real estate exam. She joined forces with Crye-Leike Real Estate Services, the nation's fourth-largest independent real estate company and the largest firm in the mid-south. "Becoming a realtor was the natural next step for me. I love helping homeowners create their dream homes. Now, not only can I connect them to the right contractors, but I can
connect them with the right home!"

The new season of My Southern Home starts March 16th at 10 a.m. on MYTV 30 and can be watched online at
