While her place of birth hasn’t been confirmed, it is known that she grew up in Lake Forest, Chicago, Illinois. She has always exhibited an interest in sports and while in high school, she played for the school’s tennis team, preferring to compete in the doubles category.
After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at Northwestern University (NU) which has its main campus in Evanston, Illinois, known for its numerous high profile programs and colleges. Some of its well-known schools include Medill School of Journalism, McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, Kellogg School of Management, and Feinberg School of Medicine.

Life After School
After completing her education, Innocenzi served as a third grade teacher for some time, while balancing various aspects of her life such as family. Eventually, she started to focus her attention more on the Good News Club, with which she has been affiliated with since childhood. The club is a program intended for five to 12 year-old children and features various activities, offering bible lessons, games, songs, and memory verses. It is a part of the Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) as its leading ministry, which also trains instructors to teach it. According to the organization, they have over 42,000 clubs in public schools across the world.
Kimberly has been very open and active when it comes to her local church. She’s always been outspoken about her faith, and during the time that her husband was playing in the major leagues, she started a bible study group within the Chicago Cubs, which included other players along with their wives. The Cubs are a member of MLB’s National League (NL) Central division, having appeared in 11 World Series, though her husband didn’t really gain attention with the team, instead gaining a lot of fame when he started playing with the New York Yankees.
Husband – Joe Girardi
Joe played baseball during high school and college, leading him to be drafted during the 1986 MLB Draft in which he was selected during the fifth round. He spent the next four seasons in the minor leagues of the Chicago Cubs before his debut. He then spent his first three years in the majors with the Cubs, and was then selected by the Colorado Rockies in 1993 after he was left unprotected during the expansion draft. He continued to perform well over the next few seasons.

In 1995, he was acquired by the New York Yankees in a trade and would then blossom with the team, helping them win three World Series during his time there. He then retired in 2003 after playing with two more teams. After his professional run ended, he became a broadcaster as well as a coach. In 2005, he was named as the manager of the Florida Marlins but only stayed there for a season. Two years later, he was offered the position of manager of the New York Yankees and stayed with the team until 2017. Throughout his tenure, the Yankees became a highly improved team.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Innocenzi and Girardi have been together since college, and have been married since 1990; they have three children and the family resides in Purchase, New York. Both of them are devout Christians; according to him, she is responsible for leading him to the Christian faith and teaching him more about Jesus. She’s supported him throughout his career, even during the beginning when he was just in the minor leagues. During her free time, she also hosts charitable events, and has done fundraisers to support stomach cancer research.
Despite all the fame of her husband, there is very limited personal information available about her. One of the reasons why this is so is because she does not have any on-line presence in any of the major social media websites, preferring to keep herself out of the spotlight. In this way, she protects her privacy as well as the privacy of her children. Her husband has a lot of public endeavors with his managerial and broadcasting work, so is also featured often in the news.
