    Kathi is best known as a legal scholar. I know that side of her as a colleague on the labor & employment certification committee for several years and a reader of her definitive volume on USERRA. But I also know her as a skilled, compassionate, and practical lawyer in the trenches serving her clients in court. Knowledge of the best when it is applied practically to serve real people. That's the story of Kathi's career.
