Kathleen started her career in the profession as a legal secretary at a prominent Cape Town firm and studied through UNISA whilst working.
She obtained her BProc degree in April 1999 and completed her articles in 2001. She stayed on as a Professional Assistant at the firm, running their collections department.
Kathleen left the firm in August 2007 when she started her own practice under the name of Bailey and Associates and in May 2009 she purchased another existing practice from attorneys who no longer wished to practice law.

She also heads the Conveyancing department where she attends to registration and transfer of properties.
