About Anderson

Kimberly Anderson is a transgender woman embarking on the second half of her life reinventing nearly every aspect of who she is. She was raised in an orthodox Mormon home, living as a boy on a horse-farm in rural Northern Utah. Anderson has both a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Utah State University. For over twenty-five years she was a practicing documentary and fine-art photographer and was a university lecturer for ten years in Utah. She has worked all over the world with an emphasis in Asia and Scandinavia. She was married for twenty years to a woman and together they have raised two children. Currently Anderson is a recent graduate of the University of San Francisco with an MA in Counseling Psychology. She has been practicing as a Marriage and Family Therapist in the San Francisco and Sacramento areas with concentrations on Native American populations, adolescents, eating disorders, and trauma. Her particular specialty is working with LGBTQ+ youth and their families transitioning through various journeys of faith and spirituality. Anderson is the photographer and author of the Mama Dragon Story Project, an ethnographic study which features portraits and autobiographical essays from over 135 Mormon moms who have decided their love for their LGBTQ+ child is greater than religious dogma. Anderson has pursued a new spiritual path based on truth, science, and love.
