Wimberly held various sales and management positions at Dialogic Communications Corporation (DCC), a leader in critical notification products and services.

Wimberly also developed a nationwide grant program, and has conducted seminars throughout the country.

He currently chairs a statewide organization that provides creative problem-solving programs for students, and holds several leadership positions with the international organization.
