Kimberly Beach-Moschetti was born in Fort Madison, IA, the middle child of eight children. She grew up in a variety of settings from farmhouse to business, eventually working for her parents’ taxicab service. Kim attended the University of Northern Iowa after High School, and soon joined the Army as an Interrogator/Debriefer Linguist. She spent several years in Germany as a translator and at Ft Huachuca as an instructor. She met her husband, Mike, a retired Veteran and educator, in the Army, and they now have three adult children.
After leaving the Army, Kim enrolled in the University of Arizona’s Education program to achieve teacher certification. She recently retired after 22 years in the classroom.
Kim volunteers as Co-Chair for the Western Heritage Student Outreach Program, WHSOP, which is a component of the Cochise County Poetry and Music Gathering, CCPMG, as well as working as a Guest classroom Teacher throughout the Sierra Vista district.
This is Kim’s first run for an elected office. She and her family have made Sierra Vista their home since retiring from the Army 26 years ago. She enjoys being involved in the community and is very interested in issues that touch people locally, and in AZ in general.
