To share her passion with the community, Kim has written several articles in monthly parenting columns for two Oregon newspapers.
Tualatin Life and Tigard Life are local publications, 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.
