About Kathy

created at http://www.abi-station.comKathy Demaree has almost 20 years experience in helping others to learn how to use computers.

Kathy (fka Kathy Walling) was raised in Clarksburg, NJ in Millstone Township, she attended Millstone Township Elementary School and Allentown High School.

In the mid-80's, the local newspaper she worked for (which just happened to be family owned) switched over from old typesetting machines to PCs using MS Word, and she got hooked. She learned how to use it and helped the staff convert.

She received her BA in Psychology from Drew University, and then worked at Caci System Designs as a Production Coordinator for 5 1/2 years. During that time, she also was a lecturer at the Fels Center of Government, at UPenn.

After leaving CSD, she was a instructor at CALC/Canterbury in NJ/NY, teaching everything from Microsoft Word to NT 4.0. Then she qualified for her Microsoft Certification in Windows 95.

A friend who was doing contractor work for Microsoft encouraged Kathy to interview for a similar position, and in September of 1997, Kathy moved to Redmond, Washington to work as a subject matter expert on Windows 98 Courseware for Microsoft Corporation.

In August of 1998, she became a full time employee at Microsoft, as a Program Manager in the Product Improvement/Feedback group. In September 1999, she joined the Windows Millennium Group, and in June 2000, she joined the Windows Media Player Group.

She left Microsoft in 2003, and now is running Demarama (which is why you're here, right?).

Kathy shares Phil's passion for music, and currently sings with the Seattle Choral Company. She is also the Membership President.
