Katelyn is no stranger to Barley Snyder. She comes to the firm after two previous part-time positions as a summer associate and law clerk while she finished her studies at the Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law.
Barley Snyder hardly was the first experience in practical law for the West York native. She had worked as a legal assistant at a Philadelphia-area firm; a legal intern with the New Jersey Attorney General, State Police, Corrections & Employment Division working in employment litigation; a judicial intern with Judge Anne E. Lazarus of the Pennsylvania Superior Court and as a legal intern with the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons.
Katelyn recently has worked with companies in the rigorous process of receiving certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE). Businesses that are owned, managed and controlled by a woman, or women, are eligible to apply for the prestigious certification awarded by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.
At Drexel Law, Katelyn was the vice president of the school’s student bar association and was the articles editor at the Drexel Law Review. She attended Drexel Law on the Rising Advocate Scholarship, which covered her full tuition. She also donated pro bono assistance to the Homeless Advocacy Project and the Pennsylvania Innocence Project, and was also a student mentor.
She graduated summa cum laude from West Chester University, where she was the captain of the school’s cheerleading team and received a degree in psychology with a minor in criminal justice. Katelyn enjoys hitting the gym, spending time with her family and baking.
