Kathy Gallagher

Co-Chair, Governance Committee, Board of Directors

Born in Los Angeles, Kathy Levin Gallagher has 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.
