Katy’s Bio

 Hi, my name is Katy and I am the Site Manager for the Mobile & Embedded Communications Extranet (ECE) on the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Communications Team.  The ECE is a restricted-access web site that is used for communicating important information related to each OEM’s license agreement with MS, including announcements, letters, product information, licensing resources, as well as marketing and technical information specifically for embedded products.  We have also recently added embedded product downloads (also referred to as product updates, supplemental code, or hotfixes) to the ECE for OEMs who purchase through distribution, so that OEMs have access to the latest updates for embedded products.  (OEMs with a direct license agreement with MS will continue to access product downloads on MS OEM Online.)  For information about accessing the ECE, please contact ECE@microsoft.com.


I have been a member of the OEM Communications Team at Microsoft for over 2 years.  I have a degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Washington, and have a background in writing, editing, and libraries.  My husband Adam is an amazing cook; when I am not eating one of his new creations I enjoy reading, playing video games with my son and exploring Seattle.
