About WordPress Barista


Cathy Mitchell (was Tibbles) founded WP Barista with Heather from Desperately Seeking Sanity in 2008.

Prior to 2008, she held several careers that had nothing – at all – to do with blogging. She was Pastor of Children’s Ministries, Executive Assistant, 911 operator and Independent Insurance Adjuster.

Cathy has lived abroad in developing countries and currently is raising a beautiful family in Canada.

WPBarista started to help blogging friends install WordPress 14 years ago. Y’all have always been at the heart of what we do.

She has been a guest speaker at WordPress meetups, volunteered at WordCamps, volunteers her time in the WP Support Forums and Facebook Help Groups. Her claim to fame in WordPress is meeting Matt Mullenweg(WordPress founder) at the first “WordCamp Dev” in Vancouver, BC.
