Paralegal

Kari began her career with Dove Law Group in August 2018. Kari holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of South Carolina Upstate. During her attendance at college, Kari completed an internship with the Children’s Advocacy Center in Spartanburg, S.C. where she worked directly with the victims of child abuse. After graduation, Kari immediately began her career with the South Carolina Department of Social Services as a foster care case manager. She began her career at Pickens County DSS where she was for three years and then transferred to York County DSS. During her seven-year career with South Carolina Department of Social Services she held the positions of Senior Child Welfare Specialist, Foster Care Case Manager, and Foster Home Licensing Specialist.

Kari’s background helped plant her seed with Dove Law Group. Kari now assists Jim and Dale with the contested custody and adoption cases, specifically those involving DSS. Kari desires to come alongside the families we serve to help secure permanence and a forever home for the children we are involved with.

Kari is a native to York County as she was born and raised in Fort Mill, S.C. Kari has two children, Allieana (Age 4) and Alijah (Age 9). In her spare time, she enjoys making memories with her children, going shopping, and watching her son play soccer and her daughter perform gymnastics.

Kari is so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of Thompson Dove Law Group. Kari enjoys being a part of the positive difference that is made when our firm is able to make a positive difference in the lives of the children and families that we serve.
