Kathy joined GRGB in 1989 as an associate attorney. Her experience with the firm began even earlier, as she worked at GRGB as a law clerk from March 1985 through May 1986 during law school. Kathy has a distinct ability to make people immediately feel comfortable, but she is also known for her no-nonsense approach and willingness to fight hard for her client.

Kathy has a diverse practice area, handling a large percentage of the firm's pretrial litigation obligations, including product liability defense and a variety of civil and criminal matters. She is also the author of scores of appellate and trial court briefs in all areas of GRGB’s practice. Known as the firm's "wordsmith," she provides a distinctive written voice to her briefs.

She has completed her two-year term as President and now serves the organization as Past President.She also is a member of the planning committee for the Chapter's annual black tie gala, the Evening of Hope. She is also involved in the planning of the annual ALS Walk held each fall in Milwaukee and other Wisconsin cities. Kathy also is a long-term supporter of two organizations in her hometown of La Crosse: The Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater La Crosse and Aquinas Catholic Schools, which includes her high school alma mater, Aquinas High School.
