Dr. Sellers was born in Washington, DC and raised in the DC-metropolitan area (Silver Spring, Maryland). She received her B.S. and M.A. degrees in Mathematics at the University of Maryland College Park as a Benjamin Banneker scholar (Dr. Raymond Johnson, mentor), and University of Maryland corporate scholar. Kimberly received her Ph.D. in Statistics at The George Washington University in May 2001 (under the direction of Nozer D. Singpurwalla), and was among the first recipients of the Gates Millennium Scholars award.

From 2001 to 2004, Dr. Sellers was a Visiting Assistant Professor of Statistics at Carnegie Mellon University as a NSF-VIGRE postdoctoral fellowship recipient, working with Bill Eddy and Steve Fienberg. From 2004-2006, she served as Assistant Professor of Biostatistics and Senior Scholar at the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. In 2006, she joined the Ordinary Faculty in the Mathematics Department at the Georgetown University as the first of several Statistics hires for their department, in an effort to build a cohesive Statistics core for the Main Campus.
