I'm an attorney, arbitrator, author, speaker, founder, and mother.

I've litigated in federal and state courts throughout the U.S. and was one of the first women appointed to the management committee of a large, national law firm. Initially earning a degree in business from Arizona State University, I then received my law degree with high honors from ITT Chicago Kent College of Law, before earning an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

  • Sometimes you just need reminding that a strong woman can also be heartfelt, funny, smart and darned appealing - and, most of all! HUMAN - and in Victoria Rodessa you find an example that is very easy to relate to. Katherine's book not only gives us a new and great character but a wonderful picture of an amazing city I am delighted to be learning more and more about - Great protagonist in a great setting. Get the book - you will have a wonderful time!

  • Read both books over a long weekend. I love legal thrillers, and these two so much because they are told from a smart professional woman’s perspective. While works of fiction, the conflicts and obstacles facing the protagonists reflect real life experience. The author—as a professional woman litigator—imbues her characters and storyline with unique depth because she lived those challenges and succeeded.
