Katie attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and graduated cum laude. She studied environmental law and Indian law at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon and earned her J.D. in 2005. Katie is licensed to practice law in Washington State and limits her practice exclusively to federal immigration law since her return to her home state of North Carolina.

Katie previously worked at Peng & Weber, PLLC, an immigration firm in downtown Seattle, later relocated to Mercer Island across Lake Washington. She dove into the practice of immigration law and fourteen years later continues to be inspired by the talents of foreign nationals working and living in the United States, or those seeking to enter the country, and being able to assist family members. Over the course of her career, Ms. Cecil has assisted numerous individuals and companies with their employment-based immigration needs and has developed familiarity and expertise in national interest waiver law and other achievement-based immigration as well as non-immigrant visas, investor visas, and foreign physicians and nurses. She has also helped numerous clients with their adjustment of status applications, family-based immigration, and naturalization applications.

Katie is a former member of AILA and former member of AILA’s International Foreign Medical Graduate Taskforce. She has two small children and loves to read and work in the garden in her spare time. Katie joined Edgerton Immigration in January 2020.
