Kati was raised in the land of Missouri. Missouri (often mispronounced “Miz-ur-ee”) is the state you would get if you bred Indiana with Arkansas. She is happy to be from there but she misses the toasted ravioli. Kati is a graduate of Wake Forest and the Saint Louis University School of Law. Chances are she is smarter than you and just about anyone you know. Prior to landing her dream job here in Division 8 she worked for the Missouri Department of Revenue. In addition to making me look good, Kati is also in charge of the S.M.A.R.T. probation database and our Intern/Extern program (a/k/a “The Division 8 College of Judicial Wisdom and Knowledge”). She bakes the best oatmeal-raisin-chocolate chip cookies on either side of the Mississippi.
