Kristi Lush

Kristi Lush has over ten years of private sector law practice experience coupled with two judicial clerkships on both the federal and state levels.  At the CDO, Kristi strategizes with students and alumni on private sector career paths including those in law firms and corporations, judicial clerkships, networking, resume and cover letter drafting, interview skills, and more.

Kristi received her Juris Doctor degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri in 2006, where she was an editor and published author for the Washington University Law Review and was a member of the Jessup International Moot Court team, winner of the International Hardy C. Dillard Competition for Best Brief on the national and international levels.  After graduation, Kristi spent two years as a judicial law clerk—one year for the Honorable Whitney Rimel of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of California and the second year for the Honorable Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr. of the Missouri Supreme Court. Prior to joining the CDO, Kristi was an equity partner and chair of the marketing committee for a civil defense firm in Denver, was named a Colorado Rising Star by Super Lawyers from 2014-2018, and has argued before the Colorado Court of Appeals and the Colorado Supreme Court resulting in published opinions.  Kristi has held leadership positions with several bar associations, moderated and presented on a variety of panels, and authored a number of scholarly, legal articles.

In her free time, Kristi is an avid world traveler—having spent two years in Nagano City, Japan teaching English in a prestigious high school, and having studied Japanese language and culture since the age of eight. Kristi also enjoys trail running, wakeboarding, playing soccer, chasing her three children, photographing the beautiful outdoors of Colorado, and watching sappy Hallmark movies.
