was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. He
graduated from West High School in 1980 and then served a two-year
mission for his church in New England. After attending the University
of Utah, he graduated with honors in 1988 with a degree in political
science, a minor in economics and a Certificate in Public
Administration. He received his law degree from Boston University in
1991. In 1993, he co-founded the law firm of Whatcott, Barrett
& Hagen PC, a law firm that specializes in helping poor and
disadvantaged clients as they work to regain control of their finances.
The firm grew to be the largest consumer bankruptcy practice in the
state of Utah. Prior to their deaths in 2009 and 2010, Kevin had taken on a more
active role as a caregiver for his mother and father. This new role in their relationship became a regular
and rewarding part of his life. During this time he also saw a
dramatic increase in elderly clients seeking help from his law firm.
Witnessing their troubles first-hand, coupled with the aging of his own
parents, Kevin was inspired to leave
the law practice to start Homewatch CareGivers of Utah to focus more
time on assisting seniors. Kevin is certified as Senior Advisor by the Society of Certified Senior Advisors
