Kimberlin Ann Brown was born in Hayward, California. She thought that she wanted to be an Architect, but famed modeling agent Nina Blanchard made her rethink her aspirations. It took a year before she committed to modeling and it quickly paid off.
After a move to Los Angeles, Kimberlin’s modeling had her on the move, jetting to Paris, Tokyo and Milan. When the pace slowed down a bit, Brown decided to take a chance on acting, landing her first role on the classic show Fantasy Island.

Other roles in films and television followed, such as T.J. Hooker, Back to School, Eye of the Tiger, Capitol, Who’s That Girl and Santa Barbara. In 1990, the juicy role of the troubled and devious nurse Sheila Carter on the #1 soap, The Young and the Restless, came knocking and Kimberlin answered the door. Brown won the role that changed her career forever.
In 1992, Sheila Carter crossed over to The Bold and the Beautiful. For years Carter wrecked havoc in Genoa City and Los Angeles. The fans ate it up. Kimberlin continued to land more roles on other shows such as Another World, Port Charles, General Hospital, Six Feet Under, Becoming Marty, One Life to Live, Proud American, The Bay, The Necklace, 5 Hour Friends and All My Children.

She also was very active in national politics, speaking at the Republican Convention in 2016. In October 2017, she announced that she was going to run for Congress in 2018.
