Emily has been handling adoptions exclusively since 2009 when she began working with Thomas Lowndes, who is now retired. She is also a Quad A attorney. Emily has authored materials for an adoption seminar presented by the South Carolina Bar.
Emily is a native of Charleston and graduated from the College of Charleston with degrees in History and Studio Art. She received her J.D. from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University and her LLM from the University of Miami Law School.
Emily became an attorney because her passion is helping people. In the community, she is an active member of First Baptist Church of Charleston and previously served on the board of the Charleston Miracle League. When she is not chasing her active little boy, Emily enjoys photography, cooking and spending time on the water when she can. She is married and is an adoptive mom herself.

Katherine had no intention of staying in Charleston after law school, but met her husband who is a Charleston Native and decided to stay. She is an active member of Grace City Church and also an advisor for the Phi Mu Chapter at the College of Charleston. She and her husband are expecting their first child in the next few months.
