Prior to joining the firm, she worked as a Legal Fellow at the University of Georgia’s Equal Opportunity Office (EOO) in Athens, Georgia. While at the EOO, Kathryn worked to ensure University compliance with all state and federal laws regarding harassment and discrimination on the basis of race, sex, ethnicity or national origin, religion, age, genetic information, disability, or veteran status. She also trained and advised University faculty, staff, and students on Title VI, Title VII, and Title IX laws.

She was also a summer associate at a national management-side labor and employment law firm and interned with the in-house counsel for two major companies. Kathryn’s broad experience in labor and employment law allows her to bring a well-rounded approach to plaintiff-side representation.
