After her graduation from the Leadership Winston Salem Class of 2011, Kathleen was honored as one of the NC Lawyers Weekly 2012 Women of Justice Rising Star Honorees and as one of 2013’s top young leaders in Triad Business Journal’s “40 Under 40.” In 2011, the Filipina Women’s Network named Kathleen one of the “100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the U.S.,” which exemplifies her pride of her Filipino-American heritage. Additionally, she has been a presenter at the International Association of Rehabilitation Professionals and at the Continuing Legal Education for the North Carolina Bar Association.

Kathleen received her Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Notre Dame and earned her Juris Doctor from the School of Law at Wake Forest University. She and her husband Shane, also a Notre Dame alumnus, “bleed blue and gold” and have been excited with Notre Dame’s involvement in the ACC.

Kathleen continues to be an advocate for health and wellness and is an accomplished athlete. She has competed in several sprint triathlons in the past and is proud of her accomplishments of having completed 9 half-marathons as well as a number of 5K and 10K races. She is involved with CR Legal Team’s Employee Wellness program (C.R.E.W.) and has been featured in the firm’s new television commercials.
