Ms. Williams-McCallum has been admitted to practice before all Kansas state courts since 2014.

Her experience as having been adopted as an infant has drawn Ms. Williams-McCallum to this area of the law. In this regard, she has worked with biological parents as well as with individuals and couples who are seeking to build their family through the adoption process.

Ms. Williams-McCallum attended Columbia College Chicago as an undergraduate, and she received a Bachelor of Science in marketing.
