Ms. Pressler has been featured in People Magazine, TIME, and voted one of Stuff Magazine.’s “101 Sexiest Women in the World.” Additionally, Pressler is also Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Dane Herron Industries, an award-winning, California-based company that specializes in the construction of dirt bike parks, skateparks, track building, event production and stunt coordinating, worldwide.
Pressler was born in Las Vegas, Nevada to Staff Sergeant Stan Pressler (Air-Force, Retired) and homemaker Michelle Pressler (Kulczyk). While Ms. Pressler's father was an active Airman, she spent her early childhood living the military life in Nevada, California, and Germany before ultimately residing in Western New York where Kimberly completed her schooling, graduating from Ten Broeck Academy of Franklinville.
Kimberly continued her education attending Clarion University of Pennsylvania  where she majored in International Business before moving on to working full-time for the Department of Energy (DOE) at a nuclear facility in Upstate New York.
Pressler captured her first state title in 1994 as Miss New York Teen USA and went on to represent her state the following August in the nationally televised Miss Teen USA pageant.
In November 1998, Kimberly was crowned Miss New York USA, one of only four women to seize both the Miss New York Teen USA and Miss New York USA titles in both pageants’ histories.
The following February (1999), Pressler competed at Miss USA 1999, held in Branson, Missouri. There, she became only the fourth woman from her state to win the Miss USA title, beating press favorites Miss Tennessee USA Morgan Tandy High (the eventual 1st runner-up) and Miss California USA Angelique Breaux.
As Miss USA, Kimberly Pressler was an official spokesperson for Breast and Ovarian Cancer Research and helped raise millions for the cause while working closely with the Carol M. Baldwin Research Foundation.
In May 1999, Kimberly represented the US at Miss Universe 1999, held in Trinidad and Tobago, where she failed to place in the semifinals, becoming only the second representative of the US to not place at Miss Universe.
