Kathy joined Synapse in November 2015, though she had already been working with Synapsters for years as a client. As a Product Quality Engineer, it's her job to deliver the right products our clients and their users. She uses a systems engineering mindset to drive all aspects of reliability throughout the product development process. She loves to let data make the tough decisions, but also enjoys hunting down hunches to find the best possible solution. Her favourite part of her job is working across all of the traditional engineering streams.
In 2005, Kathy earned her BSc in Kinesiology from the University of Manitoba. A glutton for punishment and a curious problem solver, she hadn’t even graduated the first time when she decided to also pursue a BSc in Biosystems Engineering. Soon thereafter she moved to Sheffield, UK to join her interests in an MSc in Sport Engineering (it ended up being on sock development!). She’s since worked in the sport and medical engineering fields with the aim of delivering excellent, innovative, and relevant products.
