Jenny Kimball has been Chairman of the Board of La Fonda on the Plaza since 2007. Her involvement with La Fonda goes well beyond what many people envision for a Chairman—in fact she is an integral part of daily decisions at La Fonda.
Prior to becoming Chairman of the Board of La Fonda she was an accomplished lawyer and president of a non-profit educational foundation. She moved to Santa Fe in 1989 due to her being a dear friend of Sam and Ethel Ballen who referred to her as their “near daughter”. She is married to Rob Kimball, who lives and works in Phoenix during the weekdays. Jenny is originally from Dallas, Texas.
In addition to her responsibilities at La Fonda she is involved with many Santa Fe non profits and is an avid outdoorsman as well as a supporter of contemporary artists. Her many interests are reflected in her blog postings.
