She owns Moreland Resource Consulting (MRC) which utilizes Kimberly's 30+ years of public sector urban, historic preservation, community development, and urban planning experience to help community builders (public agencies, non-profit organization, small businesses) fulfill their missions. Moreland serves as the President of Oregon Black Pioneers, is on the board of the Architectural Heritage Center, and is Vice-Chair of the Portland Historic Landmark Commission. In the 1990’s Kimberly began documenting Portland's Black history as a city planner with the City of Portland. She worked with the community advisory committee and local historians to produce History of Portland's African American History (1805 to the Present). She was on the project team that produced Cornerstones of Community: The Buildings of Portland's African American History, published in 1995. She was subsequently involved in the Multiple Property Documentation (MPD) history project, which builds on the Cornerstones research to produce African American Resources in Portland, Oregon, from 1851-1973. This research brings attention to sites related to Portland's Black history so they can get listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
