Kathryn (Kathy) Lenth was born in Iowa, moved to New Mexico to earn a few degrees at New Mexico Tech, and completed her Ph.D. in Mathematics (analysis) at the University of Wyoming. While a doctoral student she met her soon-to-be wife, Kristen Lenth, and by combining powers they created their son Wesley. In the spring of 2016 Kathryn began her transition to female; that process is now largely complete but she welcomes questions about her personal experience or gender issues in general.


Kathryn is an unabashed nerd, being a lifelong programmer and voracious reader. Other interests include cooking (particularly New Mexican cuisine), sewing, opera, and video games - when she has time! She prefers Linux and becomes more than slightly bitter when forced to use Windows.
