Kathy George is an associate attorney with Gendler & Mann. Prior to joining the firm she worked as a law clerk to Chief Justice Gerry Alexander of the Washington Supreme Court.

Kathy graduated with honors from Seattle University Law School in December 2004. During law school, Kathy spent a summer working as a legal extern at the Center for Environmental Law and Policy, assisting efforts to protect Columbia River stream flow. Other work as a law student included: helping a Western Washington tribe with litigation to promote environmental justice; and working in the law school's legal ethics and youth advocacy clinics. 

Kathy's interest in law, public policy and the environment spans two careers. From 1990 to 2005 she worked as a reporter and assistant city editor at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, where she focused on politics and government, and she also reported for the News Tribune in Tacoma. One of her favorite stories exposed King County's failure to plan for a Bhopal-like chemical disaster, and spurred the county to replace the sheriff's poorly trained emergency planning unit with a professional, civilian agency.

Kathy likes to pedal around the region's bike trails (no match for her racing, mountain-touring colleagues.) She spends most of her spare time marveling at the wisdom and charm of her son, Evan, fourth-grader and poet extraordinaire.
