Kimberly Lohman Clapp
Executive Vice President, Community Relations
Kimberly is a five-time Emmy award winning journalist who has spent a quarter decade giving a voice to the voiceless, holding the powerful accountable, and exposing dangerous trends, scams, and products. She joined the Addiction Policy Forum in 2018 after serving as the APF Family Day emcee in DC, wanting to work with those impacted by addiction and help save the next family from heartbreak.
For the last seven years at ABC7 in the Washington, DC television market, her consumer investigative reports, with a medical and scientific focus, have garnered national attention. She was the first journalist in the world to report on a link between breast implants and lymphoma; she exposed the dangers of powdered caffeine, and the trend of teenagers vaping in classrooms; and through DNA testing, she helped two sisters, both abandoned at birth, and never knew the other existed, find one another.
With passion, empathy, and concern, Kimberly has served as a moderator, host, and emcee for countless organizations, including the YMCA, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Children's National Medical Center, the Alzheimer's Association, and the Arlington County Substance Abuse Townhall. She has facilitated televised community phone banks, staffed by experts, to offer free assistance to people struggling with addiction and other diseases.
Kimberly also worked as the weekend news anchor at ABC7, NBC4, and CBS Radio, where she was part of the on-air news team that won Edward R. Murrow Awards for Overall Excellence and Best Newscast. She is the author of two books: A Random Act, a true story about a crime victim who spent her life promoting acts of kindness, and Twist of Faith, the medical recovery and spiritual journey of one woman who survived the most powerful tornado on record.
