Kim Fletcher Bowden was born on August 15, 1967, in Macon, Georgia, while her father, Senior Partner Pete Fletcher, was attending Mercer Law School, introducing her to the legal profession at an early age. Kim was raised in Augusta, Georgia, where she graduated from Westside High School in 1985. She attended the University of Georgia, acquiring both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in special education, and thereafter, she taught children with learning disabilities and behavioral disorders. After her foray in these fields, she decided to blend both of her parents' professions—education and the law.

After earning her law degree, Kim resided in St. Simons, Georgia, where she bought and renovated her own office building and opened a solo practice in Glynn County, Georgia. She cut her teeth on matters such as residential real estate transactions, simple estate planning, will caveats and probate proceedings. Not able to resist the pull of "the big city," Kim relocated to Atlanta and gained varied and valuable experience in several different types of firms and areas of the law: complex litigation for a large downtown firm; securities litigation with a nationally known boutique firm; residential real estate with a smaller specialization firm, and ultimately in her own firm with her best friend from law school.

After experiencing life in the big city, the lure of home town life and the grandparents brought Kim and her family back to Augusta, where she happily joined her father and uncle's firm: Fletcher, Harley & Fletcher. Kim specializes in education law, blending her education and experience in the field of special education with her law degree. In addition, Kim brings to the firm over 15 years of experience in residential real estate, as well as her knowledge and experience in fiduciary law.
