In her spare time, Laura is mommy to a few animals and writes novels with her writing partner.
Patrick JacksonSenior Developer
Patrick helps build, maintain and troubleshoot all of our websites and plugins. His motto, when it comes to quality control is “If it ain’t broke, I’ll break it!” And that he does. But we promise, he doesn’t leave things broken.
He is a “recreational programmer” and does programming even when he’s not working. But he does have other hobbies, such as the great outdoors, gardening, and writing.
AJ MalloryTroubleshooting Ninja
AJ is one of our talented, behind-the-scenes code wranglers who’s in charge of building the more complex pieces of our websites (and making sure nothing breaks!)
In his spare time he enjoys photography, whitewater paddling, and sea kayaking.
Jenny BonesMarketing Maven
Jenny manages our site’s content, newsletters and social media accounts. She is a copywriter, marketing consultant and proud caretaker of Adred the Magic Cat.
In her spare time you can find her trying to design a better XP farm in Minecraft…but we’re sure that’s just a phase.
Tom EwerBlogger Extraordinaire
Tom is one of our bloggers, always creating great content for the IvyCat site. He is also founder of Leaving Work Behind, an online community for people who want to quit their 9-5 jobs and build a successful business online.
In his spare time, Tom can be found checking out the latest movies, watching his favorite sports teams or dancing it up at the local music fest.
Jennifer WilliamsFront End Developer
Jennifer switched careers from genetics research to web development, and couldn’t be more pleased at the change. She invites anyone wanting to get super-nerdy to talk to her about conceptual parallels between genetics and computer programming. (See why we love her?)
Jennifer says she loves design and development, and how they fit together to make something beautiful and functional.
In her spare time she enjoys making wire jewelry and drawing, and has even been known to pick up a fencing sword once or twice. Because of this, she’s also our one-woman security department.
