Let me share a quick bio and resume of sorts so you can get to know me better.

I have a B.A. in Child Development from California State University, Bakersfield. I graduated in 2000. That’s also the year I got married to my husband, Ryan, who is a CHP officer. I have a teaching credential from CSUB, and I used to teach elementary and junior high school for a few years before I had children. I stayed home with our kids and when they were nearing the time they would go to school and I would be bored at home, I enrolled in law school. I graduated from Northwestern California University School of Law in the Spring of 2015.

I serve on the South Fork Union School District board of trustees, and am president of the board of the South Fork School and Community Foundation. Being on the board of trustees since 2010 has given me great insight. Running a non-profit foundation on a volunteer basis has allowed me to learn a lot about fundraising, business organization, leadership, and keeping the organization on the right path, both in terms of business direction and legal requirements.

I enjoy mountain biking, the outdoors, and eating peanut butter. I am easily amused. My husband and I built our own house in the outskirts of the Kern Valley while we lived in an RV.  (It took 7 years. I suppose I am patient.) If you want to spy on me via the internet, I am easy to find on Instagram (it’s my personal account: karriebunting), or on Facebook. I am a big fan of doing research before making decisions, so feel free. If you decide I’m not a good fit for you, that’s fine. After all, we would be spending time together to fix your legal needs. You need to be able to feel comfortable around me.

Why estate planning and business law?

My simplest answer is that I have seen first hand the pitfalls of not planning your estate. I have also seen the easy and seamless transition when families do take the time to make a plan. I also come from a long line of entrepreneurs. I understand what it is like to live with the stress of owning and running a business. Like our personal health, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Letting me focus on the legal details of your business allows you to create, manage, and make your business dreams a reality.
