Where did Kim Plath go to college?

Kim Plath is a self-described “naturopathic doctor,” which has rubbed some viewers the wrong way in the past since Kim has encouraged others to seek out natural remedies rather than traditional medicine. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) often take a more holistic approach to healing, recommending treatments that may include a mix of nutrition, massage, acupuncture, botanicals, and more.

While of half of U.S. states have licensing or registration for NDs, as well as laws regulating the practice, this isn't the case in Georgia where Kim lives, nor Florida where she went to college.

Kim attended Florida State University and, while she was a student there, she wasn't interested in science, medicine, or the like. Instead, she majored in music. Fans of Welcome to Plathville probably aren’t surprised by this fact since music has been a staple in Kim's household and a large part of the way she raises her children.

Kim Plath had some wild college days before starting her family and joining the cast of 'Welcome to Plathville.'

Although today Kim is considered an ultra-conservative woman follows the teachings of the Bible, that wasn’t always the case. In an episode of Welcome to Plathville (via Reality Tit Bit), she described her college years candidly to her children. She said, “[I was] driving when I was drunk and waking up in the car parked weirdly on the lawn, passed out."

"[I was] taking drugs and driving across town at three o’clock in the morning," she continued. "You know, I could have died so many different ways when I was in college, and by God’s grace I came out of it, and he saved me, and I live a different life now. But to me, the better thing would be for [my children] not to have to experience all the junk I’ve experienced.”

As of now, none of Kim’s children seem to be following in the footsteps of their mom's past partying lifestyle. The older ones do seem interested in pursuing their own interests outside of the family, though. Their daughter Moriah Plath is focused on her music career, while their son Micah Plath is pursuing modeling.
