Katie is the Legal Assistant and Notary for Estate Planning, supporting Stacy DenHerder, Shima Colbern and Kristin Locke. She also provides guidance to clients with questions about their estate plan documents and assets. Her former training as a musician and music educator translates to the office environment in her attention to detail, organizational planning, and ability to juggle several projects simultaneously.
Katie joined our firm in 2021. She started her career in law with an estate plan attorney in Solana Beach where her interest in the area inspired her to earn her paralegal certificate from an American Bar Association-approved program.
Outside of office hours, Katie is a member of the San Diego swing dance community. She loves the pure joy that comes from dancing to big band swing music and the partnership of dancing with another person. She is also an avid traveler. She has hiked, biked, kayaked and rafted through several National Parks and Canada. She has also been lucky to go to Europe on several occasions. Italy is one of her favorite countries.
Katie looks forward to helping you create an estate plan that brings you relief from worry and anxiety about your estate after you pass – that peace of mind just can’t be beat!
