Ms. McKeivier began her education at Louisiana State University where she earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Organic Chemistry, bound for medical school. However, following a summer in Washington, DC, Ms. McKeivier shifted her focus to the legal profession. During her legal studies, she joined the Donald Beiderman Entertainment and Media Law Institute and accepted an internship as a certified law student in the Los Angeles District County District Attorney’s office, where she participated in a series of criminal prosecutions.
