Kimberly M. Kantor, Business & Client Care Manager
Before joining Burch Law as the Business Manager, Kimberly Kantor worked in education as an Adapted Physical Education Consultant focusing on students with special needs in the area of physical education and recreation. In 2012, she founded Rainbow Roundup, originally a Facebook group for North Texas LGBTQ families that has grown to over 2000 members. In 2015, due to its tremendous success, Rainbow Roundup officially became a 501(c)(3) organization. As Founder and Executive Director, Kimberly organizes monthly events, provides support and resources, and creates an environment for members to develop lifelong supportive networks. She also serves on the Family Equality’s National Network. Kimberly received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in Kinesiology from the University of North Texas and Texas Woman’s University respectively, specializing in adapted physical activity.
She made a career change from education to managing the law firm and surprisingly found the transition a natural fit. Kimberly continues to put people’s individual needs first while still helping people. She is compassionate, caring, and sympathetic and understands that having this very important estate planning in place can not only provide clients with the opportunity to leave a legacy behind for their loved ones or organizations they care about, but it can provide peace of mind knowing their wishes and intentions can be carried out. Kimberly recognizes that the loss of a loved one is very emotional and that our clients are often still grieving when they reach out to us for guidance to help find a solution to their legal concerns. She helps them find comfort knowing that Burch Law can help them navigate through the legal difficulties that they are facing. Kimberly’s passion and leadership in founding a non-profit has also empowered her to have a deeper appreciation for the considerations that our firm takes in helping clients determine what business formation will ensure they are compliant and well protected under the law.
Kimberly thrives being a part of the Burch Law Team as everyone demonstrates a similar disposition while regarding humanity, respect, and incentive to serve and help others from all walks of life. She is continuously encouraged as her personal and company values align and conform with the culture of the firm. Kimberly finds comfort and a sense of belonging as she is celebrated to grow personally and professionally with a team that is committed to fundamentally making everyone feel comfortable and showing positivity in contributing to the well-being of society.
While in college, Kimberly had the opportunity to nanny for several Dallas Stars Hockey families! They traveled to many places including to and from Canada and she had an amazing time! At times too much fun! It taught her a lot about the sport, but even more about herself. Kimberly was challenged and learned how to work well with others. She learned that life can be messy and unpredictable when working with kids, and there are some things we can’t control. She realized that life is short and time goes by so quickly as she watched the years pass with the children growing up. Kimberly found she had to embrace the stresses and growing pains so that she could find the contentment and wonder that each day brings!
