Kait has a BA in History from Washington State University and Master Degree in Software Engineering from Penn State University. Having an early career in publishing and shifting web publishing and web development. Working at Penn State College of Medicine as a web specialist for 5yrs. She is a self proclaimed reasonable perfectionist.
That is to say, she likes things to be done properly, and they also need to be done on time and within the budget (chronological and financial).
Kait is a strong client advocate, believing that the developers are not always right. The designers are not always right. What’s right is whatever user experience is best for the client and/or end-user. Focusing on the metric that makes the most sense for the desired outcome.
Kait loves learning new things or expanding on existing knowledge/techniques. She is constantly seeking out new strategies, libraries and techniques, but only implement them when it makes the most sense for a given project.
She leads the development team at Cognition and works to frame proper intake, technical and functional specification, and coordinates closely with the project management and operations team to ensure a timely delivery.
