Kimberley Jackson, DO
Member of the Board of Directors
Dr. Jackson grew up in New Jersey and went to college at Rutgers University, where she graduated with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering. She attended medical school at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, School of Osteopathic Medicine, from which she graduated a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in 2008. After medical school, Dr. Jackson specialized in family medicine and practiced in Pueblo until 2012, when a progressive neurologic illness forced her to leave practice. She moved to Denver in 2013, and took CCDC’s basic advocacy class in 2014. Using her experience as a physician and a person with a disability, she helped to create a training on disability for medical providers and has been to over a dozen clinics around the state to facilitate training sessions. Dr. Jackson has also testified at the State Capitol on a number of bills important to the disability community. She serves on two committees for Colorado Medicaid: the Pharmacy and Therapeutics committee, and the State Medical Assistance and Services Advisory Council – to which she was appointed by Governor Hickenlooper in 2015. Dr. Jackson recently became a board member of the Phamaly theater company for people with disabilities, and has been on stage as an actress with them as well. In her spare time, she enjoys writing and teaching religious education at her church. She is grateful for the opportunities CCDC has given her to help other people with disabilities using her unique skill set.
