Kristin Collins
Lead Programmer

I have always been ambitious and my successes in life have been driven by hard work, creativity and an unrelenting desire for accomplishment.

In my early high school years, I was involved in the performing arts where I acted in plays. I also had a leading role in a short film. I attended college at 16 and continued taking classes for 12 years, eventually earning multiple degrees; A.S. in General Studies, A.A.S. in Computer Science and a bachelor’s in Computer Science from Harvard.

While working on my education, I always strived to be self-sufficient by working multiple jobs to buy my first car and to pay my way through college. I then used my job experience to improve my development skills as well as inspiration for some of my hobby projects - I really enjoy sewing, reading, and video games. My passion is creativity and problem solving that accompany programming.
