Kathryn Benedicto, Developer

Happy Snowman Tech is the consulting practice of Kathryn Benedicto. Kathryn has eight years of experience in the software industry, building enterprise-class applications at companies such as Ariba and Novell. She holds a master's degree in computer science from MIT.

Kathryn's interest and involvement in the nonprofit sector goes well beyond the technical arena. Her past and current activities include leading volunteers at Bread of Life and Resource Area For Teachers, putting up Freecycle posters in her neighborhood, and contributing to the Living Green Below Your Means blog at the Center for a New American Dream.

Kathryn blends her passion and understanding of social change work with her technical expertise to craft creative, powerful web solutions for nonprofits.

"Kathryn at Happy Snowman Tech is all about service provided with high integrity. We hired Kathryn to help with our blog and her talent and expertise was invaluable. She cares deeply about her work and is passionate about helping clients feel empowered. If you're a non-profit organization looking to hire a professional that goes the extra mile and offers excellent value, look no further, you've found the person you need. I highly recommend Kathryn."

"Kathryn at Happy Snowman Tech provided just the information and support we needed to put up a rich, awesome website for Your Money or Your Life in no time flat. She balanced doing what was needed for us—and teaching us to do for ourselves—patiently, clearly and with a real devotion to our success."
