Kay later built upon the fundamentals she learned as a prosecutor as she tried numerous civil and criminal cases in Oklahoma. Upon reaching the ripe old age of 29, Kay was offered a judicial appointment, but decided that she wanted to further her career by moving to Big D where she has specialized in personal injury litigation for the past 25 years.
