Kelsey focuses her practice on litigating civil disputes, including employment, business, insurance coverage, and environmental disputes. She joined Chenoweth Law Group in 2018 after working as a law clerk with the firm.  She graduated cum laude from Lewis & Clark Law School in 2018.  While at Lewis & Clark, Kelsey served as Notes and Comments Editor of Lewis & Clark Law Review.  She was a member of Lewis & Clark's nationally and internationally recognized Phillip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court team.  Kelsey also acted as a mentor to first-year students and participated in Business Law Society. Prior to joining CLG, Kelsey gained valuable insight into how to effectively resolve disputes while working as a law clerk at Northwest Workers' Justice Project and serving as a volunteer at the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon.

Kelsey earned a Bachelor of Arts from University of Oregon in 2014, where she graduated with a major in journalism and minors in political science and Spanish. During her undergraduate studies, Kelsey participated actively in campus life. She spent two years as a member of the executive board of the Associated Students of the University of Oregon and studied abroad in Oviedo, Asturias, Spain. In her free time, Kelsey enjoys cheering on the Ducks, exploring Portland's many interesting restaurants, enjoying Oregon's wine country, traveling with friends, assisting Lewis & Clark's Jessup team as a volunteer judge, and hiking the Columbia River Gorge's many beautiful trails.
