Biography

Attorney Codie Lynn Burt graduated with her Juris Doctor from Michigan State University College of Law in the spring of 2021 (Go Green!) and subsequently was admitted to the Michigan State Bar in November of 2021. During her law school career, Codie was a peer mentor in the Reading, Writing and Analysis Department for the law school, completed a forty-hour job shadow at Miller Canfield in Kalamazoo, gained her certificate to become a Civil Facilitative Mediator and worked in-house as a legal intern at Jackson National Life Insurance Company before starting her career at Herbert Machnik Law Firm.
Before law school, Codie had worked in a variety of professional fields. She started her career in the medical field working in the offices of several surgeons and eventually became a Bariatric Surgical Coordinator. She has worked in retail and sales, the hospitality industry and assisted with her parents' archery business.

Codie has chosen to be a BIG through Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Kalamazoo and has been matched with her Little since the beginning of 2016. In addition to being a BIG, Codie has served on a Big Brothers Big Sisters Event Committee since 2019.

Codie was born and raised in the Lansing area, spent four years in Dallas/Fort Worth and finally moved to Kalamazoo in 2015 with her husband Josh and their four-legged fur child, Dante. Josh is the Director of Golf at Kalamazoo College as well as a teaching professional at the Golf Performance Academy in Kalamazoo. Dante is a 60 lb. White Swiss Shepherd/Pomeranian mix who spends most of his day lounging around the house protecting it from the delivery men and mailmen.

In her spare time, due to her husband's career, Codie has taken up golf as one of her hobbies. Her other hobbies include watching or attending any MSU sporting event, running/working out, reading, puzzles, escape rooms, and game nights with family and friends.
