Katie was born and raised in Maryland, moved to Kailua, Hawaii in her late 20’s, and made her way to Austin, Texas in 2012. After graduating from McDaniel College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, she began working for a non profit psychiatric treatment program as a Resource Management Specialist and later went on to work for a psychiatric hospital as a Mental Health Technician in its’ outpatient program. Knowing her love of and ability to work with people transitioning through life’s challenges but realizing her desire for a more structured setting, she began to research opportunities in the paralegal field, finding that Family Law is the perfect blend.
Katie has been with Partney Law since May 2015 and has found paralegal work to be challenging and fulfilling. Her diverse professional experience, calming presence and willingness to listen through the struggles, while pointing out and celebrating life’s victories has been an asset to the team.
In her down time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, being outdoors, hiking or paddle boarding through Austin.
