From beginning to end, Kim is the generous caretaker of the Tienken & Associates community.
Relationships also fuel Kim’s personal life. She draws great satisfaction from connecting with friends and family over a home-cooked meal, and now extends that same spirit of hospitality to the students in her “Community Thyme” cooking classes.
Kim and her husband Brian have been married for 39 years. Together they enjoy spending time with their adult children and granddaughter Emerson, as well as traveling and vacationing with their family in Oregon and California.
