Kim Bradshaw is a native of the Washington, D.C. metro area. Having studied business and accounting at Howard University, Kim entered the legal industry as an administrative assistant in the litigation area in 1998. After spending more than ten years in the industry, Kim joined Gray Plant Mooty in 2010. Immediately, she was struck by the firm’s welcoming culture. With the firm’s commitment to work-life balance, employees could excel professionally without letting their personal lives languish. In addition, the firm’s diversity programming helped employees from different backgrounds relate to one another. “Everyone connects with each other,” Kim says. “Everyone learns from each other.”
In addition to her work within the firm, Kim serves as head coach for Greenbelt S.I.T.Y. Stars Jump Rope Team, a competitive and performance jump rope team that is committed to the promotion of jump rope as a fitness tool for the development of healthy lifestyles. For 25 years, S.I.T.Y. (which stands for Sensational, Inspirational, Talented Youth) has worked to train youth athletes not just in developing technical skills, but also promoting fitness and teamwork, building self-esteem and confidence, and encouraging good sportsmanship. The Greenbelt S.I.T.Y. Stars are building the future leaders of their communities.
Whether it’s within the office or throughout the wider community, Kim is connecting with and serving those around her.
Angie is the picture of someone unafraid to tackle new challenges. Originally hired as a receptionist in 1991, her duties at Gray Plant Mooty have expanded to include project support for several departments, including accounting, human resources, and marketing. While Angie’s determination to excel clearly shows in her work, her independent spirit goes well beyond the office. Despite physical limitations that have caused her to use a wheelchair since childhood, she navigates the downtown Minneapolis streets and skyways with practiced ease. During the business day, her service dog Brick is her constant companion.
“This firm and its people have always embraced me openly. At my wedding, a number of attorneys said they felt like they were at a family reunion because there were so many current and former Gray Plant Mooty people in attendance. Those comments are a testament to my 25 years with the firm. I’m a coworker, but also friends, with people at all levels of Gray Plant Mooty. They may not be related to me by blood, but they are family.”
