From 1985 until 2006 Ms. Kuntz was a professor of classical languages and literatures and, from 2001 to 2005, she directed the Women's Studies Program at Auburn University.

Ms. Kuntz is a 2008 graduate of the George Washington University Law School. While in law school, Ms. Kuntz interned at the Institute for Women's Policy Research, working on a project funded by the Ford Foundation studying the remediation of sex and race discrimination in the workplace. She also worked on amicus briefs before the Supreme Court and courts of appeal while an intern at AARP.

Before joining KCNF, Ms. Kuntz spent six years at another firm litigating employment matters in the federal and private sectors and focusing primarily on discrimination, disability, family medical leave and wage and hour claims, as well as management training and advising. With her own experience as a tenured professor, Ms. Kuntz has proven effective helping academics appeal denials of tenure and promotion.
