Kim Nothdurft

Kim is an Arizona Native who grew up in Mesa. She now lives in South Gilbert with her husband Andrew of 20 years and their 5 children. Kim's 5 kids range from ages 19 to 5 and although she feels she's pretty much seen it all, somehow her kids still seem to surprise her. Kim owns an agency supporting individuals that are members of AZ Dept of Developmental Disabilities with direct home care workers. She works from home trying to juggle it all. More accurately, she’s just dropping a lot of balls and laughing about it and posting it to her IG stories.
