For the past 22 years, Kimmel has been a successful businesswoman — owning and operating a variety of stores in the Valley, including 15 years as owner of Lucky You, a resale clothing store.

Babies.com - We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym
My business is We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym for All kids. Our doors opened at the end of the year in September 2010. We are an open play sensory gym. What that means is that all the fun equipment we use -- swings, climbing apparatus and toys -- is based on occupational therapy. All children love to play at We Rock, but for children who are on the spectrum, they need it!
We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym a Special Place for All Kids
Dina Kimmel, a successful entrepreneur, is giving to the community, and word is spreading. She is giving strength, love, patience, and acceptance. Kimmel, president and owner of We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym in Tarzana, has designed and built her kid’s gym with a specific clientele in mind. Thirty percent of the children that come through the door are children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD. It all started with a little boy named Gabriel.
Autism Speaks and We Rock
We Rock has joined forces with Autism Speaks and raised several thousands of dollars for Autism Research. Every year the gym walks for Team Gabriel (in honor of the Kimmels son ).
