Kathy Gallagher

Born in Los Angeles, Kathy Levin Gallagher lived here her entire life. She graduated from the Brentwood School where she was active in school theater. She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Los Angeles in History/English. Following her father’s dream for her to be a lawyer (not an actress), she earned her law degree from Loyola Law School. After working at a prominent Los Angeles law firm, she co-founded an environmental law firm, Gallagher & Gallagher, in Century City.

After Kathy’s son Brendan (now age 22 and a recent Stanford University graduate) was born, she continued her career for a short time, but found that being a mom was the most fulfilling and important role of her life. She was a volunteer for many years in a range of school-related activities at John Thomas Dye and Harvard-Westlake School. In between carpool and her school volunteer work, she remodeled and built several homes.

Kathy also became involved with Lupus LA about eleven years ago when her ex-husband was diagnosed with lupus. She has served as a highly active Lupus LA board member for the past ten years and participated in the planning committees for each of Lupus LA’s fundraising events. Kathy was also a member of the Director’s Circle at The Los Angeles County Museum of Art from 2014-2016.

Kathy lives in Brentwood with her fiancé Greg Scott. Her interests away from her family and her board work include cooking, entertaining, traveling, and hiking.
