Kim Mickenberg

Kim’s passion for storytelling and strategic communications was apparent from early childhood. Starting at age five, she spent entire days reading, prompting her mother to encourage her to “put down the books and go out and play like a normal kid.” Luckily, Kim not only turned out “normal,” but she also turned out to be an exceptional asset to Thinkso’s creative team. She excels at streamlining text, simplifying complicated ideas, and developing clever, concise communications.

At Thinkso, Kim works on content development and strategy for a wide array of clients, including KCG, Bernstein Shur, Blackstone, UBS, Baylor College of Medicine, Sesame Street, First Manhattan, Schulte Roth & Zabel, and the Population Council.

Prior to joining Thinkso, Kim spent four years as a strategic communications consultant at Booz Allen Hamilton. There, she was a lead writer and newsletter editor at the Department of Defense and later served as the senior editor at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

Before going into consulting, Kim worked at an environmental nonprofit, where, among other things, she planned Earth Day on the National Mall. She started her career in journalism as a writer, reporter, and researcher at Psychology Today.

Kim graduated from Brown University with a BA in comparative literature in Spanish and Portuguese literatures.
