Originally hailing from Oklahoma, Kathy moved to Phoenix in 1984. She received her A.A. degree in Paralegal Studies in 1993 from Phoenix College. Her employment at Hughes-Calihan Office Machines inadvertently led her to the law through her advanced knowledge of word processing systems. She began as a legal secretary with James Benham, P.C. in 1986 and then moved on to work as a corporate paralegal with Bob Lane of Lane & Ehrlich, Ltd. in 1988. The two have worked together ever since and moved to Burch & Cracchiolo in 2017. Kathy loves her interaction with long-term clients as they know they can go to her to get the job done.
Kathy has been married to her husband Michael for 10 years and they have two sons ages 16 & 20, and 3 Boston terriers. They loved to travel anywhere where there is a beach for some fun and relaxation.
