Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF)
Currently the Ecosystem Advocate for CNCF, Katie works closely with the End User Community. Katie’s main goals are to develop and execute programs to expand the visibility and growth of the End User Community while bridging the gap with other ecosystem units, such as TOCs and SIGs. In past roles, Katie contributed to the build-out of platforms that gravitate towards cloud-native principles and open-source tooling, with Kubernetes as the focal point. These projects started with the maintenance and automation of application delivery on OpenStack-based infrastructure, which transitioned into the creation of a centralized, globally distributed platform at Condé Nast.
