Chera Kimiko-Zoellner is a familiar face in the state of Oklahoma. Not only is she the business owner of Kimiko Medical Aesthetics on 91st and Yale, but she and her husband, Dr. Chuck Zoellner, are the proud owners of the Kimiko-Zoellner AAA Insurance agency.
Prior to being a tri-business owner with her husband, Chera spent almost 24-years as a well-respected TV anchor and journalist. Sixteen of those years were in the Tulsa area.
While in the field, Chera spent countless hours reporting on tragedies from fires to floods to earthquakes and tornadoes. Knowing and seeing the emotional side of what families go through when they don't have enough coverage for personal belongings or liability protection gives her a great understanding of the insurance business and why it's so important to be protected in every aspect. Cheaper prices don't always mean the best deals for your or your family—especially in times of tragedy.
Chera is involved with many local organizations. She is a committee member of The Pencil Box and is the Co-Chairman with her husband, Chuck Zoellner for the Illuminate Gala benefiting the Little Light House in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She's also a member of the Tulsa Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary and is a member of the Broken Arrow Chamber. She is also a member of the Greater Tulsa Association of Realtors (GTAR), the Women's Council of REALTORS® and the Home Builders Association (HBA). She is also involved with Dress For Success. Chera also had devoted time to the Muscular Dystrophy Association searching for a cure for Lou Gehrig's disease also known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
In Chera’s free time (if there is any), she loves to exercise and is a Boston Qualifier marathon runner. Her first marathon in 2003, was the Walt Disney World Marathon in Orlando, Florida to benefit the American Heart and Stroke Association in honor of family members who have had strokes and heart disease. Her 15th and 16th marathons were the prestigious Boston Marathon. Chera also enjoys golf, yoga and aerobatic flying and is also a former competitive figure skater. One of her most exciting ice-skating moments was skating pairs during a live newscast with 1988 Olympic Gold Medalist Brian Boitano.
