Kathy Hirsekorn

Managing Partner & Sr. Network Engineer – MCT, CCI, MCTS, MCPS, MCNPS, MCDST, MBSS, CCA, Net+, A+

Technically, Kathy has experience in design, implementation and support of server and desktop infrastructure. She is highly skilled in all Microsoft Windows server and client editions. She also has extensive experience in migrating client workstations to Windows 7 using Microsoft automated deployment methodologies. She has designed and implemented server consolidations that include Windows Server Hyper-V and System Center Virtual Machine Manager. She has designed and deployed Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, and System Center Operations Manager. She has managed multiple IT departments in both small and large enterprise environments. Kathy loves to work with other small and medium business owners – being one herself, she feels we all share many of the same similar challenges which lays the ground work for a strong partnership.

Her expertise is Microsoft and Citrix centric, where she’s one of only a handful of technical trainers with those credentials in all of the Americas. If you’re wondering – she’s 2 of only 97. Yep! She’s that high up there in the network infrastructure food chain. She has extremely strong project management skills and strong leadership experience. At Leapfrog, she uses those skills to lead by example, so don’t be surprised if you call our Service Desk, and Kathy answers personally. How cool is that?

When Kathy isn’t working, she’s either with her family and two kids doing fun family things, or occasionally you’ll find her talking smack at the pool table where she thinks she’s an 8 ball champion. If you get a chance to play her, don’t get hustled, she’ll probably kick your butt. Kathy is an avid scuba diver and skier, and is anxiously awaiting her 2 year old to be old enough to hop on the slopes.
