WeDiscoverGeeks focuses on technology, STEM Education, apps, video games, board games, art, music, and all things geeky. We teach, explore, and embrace innovation, creativity, and technological advancements through workshops, seminars, and trade shows.
Technology, computers, and electronic entertainment are not just a hobby anymore. In fact, most of our technological advancements have become necessities in life. Many of our younger generations are so dependent on technology for communication and daily living. And many of our older generations are dependent on technology for medical and assisted living. WeDiscoverGeeks believes it is essential to understand and adapt to these technological changes around us. We focus on technology, STEM Education, apps, video games, board games, and HOW to balance these with family and work life.
Created and Owned by Kat Mahoney, WeDiscoverGeeks was formerly TheGeekParent that grew larger than a parental focus. As the audience grew and the need for tech education and digital awareness became more important, Mrs. Mahoney reconnected with the community as a whole rather than on an individual basis.
For over 20 years I have been in the Digital Education and Electronic Entertainment industry. I attended Hawaii Pacific University for Computer Science where I assisted upcoming companies in developing a web presence while teaching business owners how to integrate technology and online marketing. I then moved onto video game beta testing and working with game developers on community and social media marketing, as well as testing innovative technology products. I have interviewed some prestigious world-renowned tech professionals, game developers, and tested and reviewed video games and tech products that helped contribute to my self-published guide, “A Savvy Moms Guide to Parenting Generation Z”.
One of the most amazing projects I’ve worked on, I was the system administration for an $80 million dollar Architectural and Construction Project that built the Sandia Hotel & Resort in Albuquerque New Mexico. The Architects, Construction workers, and staff were brilliant creative minds in one building! The process of building an $80 million dollar resort from the ground up was a remarkable and phenomenal event and it makes me proud to know I was a part of that every time I look at it. it is one of Albuquerque's most glamourous buildings to date! I love technology, creativity, and businesses and I enjoy combining all for a successful outcome.
Since 2008 I have also assisted military Veterans in starting their own businesses, as well as military families overcoming adversity in mental health, career & life changes, and home organization. I have over 40 years in the military lifestyle and have exceptional people skills that have awarded me Military Spouse of the Year and Volunteer of the Quarter for Air Force Spouse Clubs and nationwide recognition with large scale companies such as Lockheed Martin and Microsoft. I am also a published Author, having written several books for both technology education and military family deployment survival.
Aside from my digital life, I have a husband named CJ, who served in the US Air Force for 24 years as a Flight Engineer before retiring in 2014, and three teens, Nova, Alex, and Rob, who are currently into computers, art & film, aerospace, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education. I love Star Wars, cosplay, video games, board games, and I'm an avid World of Warcraft player.
