Katie has a Bachelor of Laws as well as a Bachelor of Arts in History and Psychology.
She first started practicing law in Nelson in 2000, working mainly in the area of family law. She also practised employment and criminal law and volunteered at the Nelson Bays Community Law Service.
After the birth of her second child in 2005, Katie took some time out from the profession and began a 10-year career as a freelance editor of scientific manuscripts from Japan and China.
Katie decided to resume her legal career in 2019 and chose to do so at Stevens Orchard, again specialising in family law.
Outside of work, Katie enjoys supporting her children in their various pursuits and spending time in the great outdoors running, biking and tramping.
