Hello there.

Kathy Zant

Thanks for stopping by. I’m Kathy Zant, and this is my home on the web. 

I contribute on Wordfence’s Think Like a Hacker podcast if you want to hear what I think about WordPress, security, and innovation. I really enjoy these weekly chats about what’s new in WordPress, security and innovation.

I’ve been a user of WordPress for well over 10 years, and only recently I’ve begun being active in the WordPress community. I helped out at WordCamp Phoenix. That was epic. You can read my thoughts here.

While you’re here, you can read some of my most recent blog posts, contact me, see where I’m going, or learn more about me.


Up Next

I’m exceptionally excited to speak at WordCamp US this year. I’ll be talking about The Hacker Mindset. It’s essentially the same talk I gave at WordCamp Boston, but I’ll have some updates to add. I’m really excited about WordCamp US this year because we’ll be doing a world premiere of OPEN, the film we made about the WordPress community and why it’s so special. Stay tuned!

One week after WordCamp US, I’ll be traveling to WordCamp Seattle to talk about the Hacker Mindset again.

You can also check my schedule for upcoming events at which I’ll be either speaking, attending, sponsoring with Wordfence.


I am a speaker

Need a speaker? I love talking about WordPress, the community, the open web, publishing online, security, hacking, and innovation. I also like to talk about changing mindsets to live a more fulfilling life. I do my best to inject comedy and fun into every talk I do. When it stops being fun, I’ll stop altogether. What’s the point of doing something that isn’t fun?

I’d be happy to discuss your event’s needs and prepare a presentation specific to your needs. Or you can peruse my past talks and see if something fits.
