Kathy Pendleton grew up in Virginia, toward the end of the era of life-time careers and marriages and stay-at-home moms.  The product of an idyllic childhood in a neighborhood of many children, jump rope and hide and seek, she was expected to lead a life similar to that of her parents.  How many of you can relate to that?

After attending college at Old Dominion University and the University of Maryland, she accepted a position in software development with a small computer manufacturing division of a large corporation.  This began a 26-year career, mostly in technical education and customer support, a role in which she excelled.  Her strengths in analyzing, simplifying, and teaching complex computer processes led her to fulfill dreams of travel, experiencing life outside the USA, and appreciation for many varying points of view.

While continuing the pursuit of her life’s passion, Kathy lives in San Jose with her husband, Tom
