Yekaterina (Kate) Boltenkov is from Alapayevsk, Russia. In 1996 when she was 10 years old, her family moved to United States and settled in Washington State because of religious persecution. Kate is the seventh child in a family of eight and living in Russia was a very hard life. While in Russia, she couldn't even have dreamed of entering law, but she had the desire to do something incredible with her life. It was in the United States that her dreams were to be realized and it was that desire that brought her to Colorado after graduating high school.
After high school, Kate started considering what she wanted to do. She considered a number of options and decided on the legal field because the justice system was interesting, so she entered Corinthian Institution Paralegal Program. Following graduation in April of 2008, Kate answered an ad posted by Pitler and Associates, P.C.
