High Res-8506367

Katie became interested in family law during her second year of law school, when she took her first course in the subject.  After clerking at Gapen, Larson, & Johnson during her third year of school, she knew that she wanted a career devoted to the practice of family law. Katie believes that a family’s best interests are served by a resolution-focused approach that parallels the specific needs of each individual family.

Katie’s professional background is further shaped by her service in the United States Air Force, where she proudly served for six years and was promoted to the rank of Staff Sergeant. Her military experience prepared her well for a career in law, as it taught her to be an efficient multitasker, to conduct herself with strong discipline and ethics, and to hold herself to a high standard of expectation.
