One way Kim stays active in her own community, is by writing a monthly parenting column called Passport to Parenting in the local newspaper since 2013.

Tualatin Life is Tualatin’s local voice, direct mailed to all homes, apartments and businesses in 97062 every month. Kim’s hope is that readers pull out a golden nugget of information to help them make their parenting journey a little smoother along the way.
