Katherine Ming is a licensed civil engineer, Civil 3D Certified Professional, and teacher.
Katherine boasts five years of experience teaching and supporting customers in AutoCAD and Civil 3D. From 1000s of hours of instruction and technical support, she developed the ability to explain and solve technical issues with clarity and efficiency. In addition to teaching, she loves figuring out new and innovative ways to use Civil 3D and AutoCAD.
Prior to her teaching role—while working at the international engineering firm Arup—she learned site development including grading, utility, storm water, roadway, and drainage design. Her energies are now focused on combining her presentation, training, and design skills with her Civil 3D knowledge to provide high-quality training and consulting.
Lynda Sharkey is a technical specialist, software prototyper, product manager, and technical marketer.
Over the last 17 years, Lynda has worked with decision makers, end users, and partners throughout Europe, the USA, and South Africa. She continues to be amazed at the myriad ways in which GIS and design technology can be used to build stronger, more resilient infrastructure, and more sustainable communities. She is almost Labrador-like in her enthusiasm to share that knowledge with anyone who cares to listen.
Her most recent corporate position was a product manager responsible for developing, prototyping, and bringing to market sustainable city and transportation solutions; however, she has eschewed the rat race, moved to Spain, and is now a freelance technical content creator and technical marketer. She also runs a small adventure-motorcycle rental and tour company with her husband.
