Your Trusted Tulsa, Oklahoma Lawyer
Karrie was born and raised in northeast Oklahoma. She grew up on her family farm east of Catoosa. After high school, she attended Rogers State University in Claremore, OK where she received an Associate of Arts in History. She then went on to attend Northeastern State University in Broken Arrow but finished up her Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education at NSU’s main campus in Tahlequah, OK after she purchased a small farm in Mayes County.
After college, Karrie began working at OKDHS at the Laura Dester Children’s Center caring for deprived and neglected children while they waited on a foster home to open up. She really enjoyed helping the children as much as she could, but saw a need for more help, so she decided to attend the University of Tulsa College of Law after previously deferring her acceptance.
Karrie showed great resilience and work ethic throughout law school. While muddling through great turmoil in her personal life, she managed to maintain her studies, her work at the Laura Dester Center, and connections with her peers. This is great evidence of her ability to manage stress and her ability to keep her goals and work at the forefront of her mind.
While in law school, Karrie traveled to Dublin, Ireland to study law for the summer and intern with an Irish Barrister in the criminal court. She also interned for a year with the Public Defenders Office at the Municipal Criminal Court in Tulsa, OK. In addition to the work at the public defenders office, Karrie simultaneously worked on immigration matters with the Immigrant Rights Project in TU’s Boesche Legal Clinic, where she helped in the representation process of families in the Karnes Detention Center while they awaited their asylum claims.
After graduating law school, Karrie worked as an independent contract attorney for some Tulsa attorneys where she gained independence and decided to open up her own law firm. She enjoys seeing the differences and similarities between the courthouses in Tulsa, Mayes, and Wagoner Counties.
