Cathy's first foray into the wild world of software globalization was as a linguist intern on the Windows NT 3.1 team in the summer of 1991, working on Unicode 1.0 implementation and NLS support. Many Windows projects, many interesting diversions and many years later, she joined Microsoft full-time in 2000 and is now a program manager in the Windows Globalization team. She holds an MA and a PhC (Candidate of Philosophy Certificate) from the University of Washington in Germanic Linguistics, and and completed an MEd in Adult Education and Training from Seattle University in 2001.
