Kate feels very fortunate to have been able to attend Catholic schools from kindergarten all the way to law school. She graduated from St. Pius in 1997 and was in the McGill-Toolen Class of 2001. She went on to graduate from Spring Hill College and Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, Florida. Kate currently works in Mobile for her father’s law firm, Richard E. Browning, P.C. They specialize in the areas of Worker’s Compensation, Social Security Disability, Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation and Personal Injury.
Kate says, “I think what I loved most about McGill was the concept of helping students to grow and better themselves in mind, body and spirit. McGill-Toolen Catholic is a true community, and there is a niche for everyone.” Kate found her niche by participating in clubs such as the Student Ambassador's Club, Pro-Life Club and Key Club and playing on the girls' tennis team all four years. She enjoyed being challenged in AP and Honors classes. Kate says she loved the fact that she attended a high school that not only had exciting football games and entertaining plays, but a place where she had the opportunity to attend Mass in the school gym and begin each class with a prayer.
“While at McGill-Toolen Catholic, I was surrounded by students who became some of my closest friends and still are to this day.”, Kate said. As an alumnus, she thoroughly enjoys attending events such as football games and the Jacket Jubilation. She is really looking forward to her ten-year reunion this summer, as well! Kate said, “I cannot believe it has already been a decade since graduation, but I will be eternally grateful for the preparation I received at McGill- Toolen Catholic and look forward to being an active alumnus for many years to come.
