Then she entered the technology communications world as international account supervisor for the $120 million 3Com account at Lowe Lintas, an Interpublic agency. Burke’s next position at World Software Corporation – makers of Worldox® document management software – brought her into the legal software niche.

Burke leveraged her knowledge and contacts to spin off her own agency in 2004.
