Kristen Buchanan live in Portland, Oregon with her husband, cats and dog. She went to school for museum education, with a minor in art history – note the non-technical background. She was a kid who loved archeology and anthropology, and though she was going to be spending her time in museums. Personally, she loves teaching and sharing new things with people – yet, never wanted to be a teacher.
Her hobbies center around learning new things and being outside, She loves to read, and used to dig into the relics in the library stacks at her school. An interesting fact, when studying the art of wax painting in an old latin book, she found a note that someone had passed their friend in latin class – from the 1950’s. She is also a big DIY’er and gardener, enjoying the engineering in both of those things. In fact, she highlighted that there is a lot of math and engineering within the world of creating clothing.
In 2015, she started her own business to offer learning & development services, and specializing in software engineering onboarding. She was challenged by a mentor to turn this into a software solution, and after some reflection time, she decided to do just that.
