President Kinsman Design Associates

A cable pioneer in every sense, Kinsman has consulted for cable executives on system architectures, first within various companies where she was employed and since 2009 as president of her own firm. A cherished thought leader who can synthesize deep institutional knowledge and the intricacies of cutting-edge technology evolution, she has a keen sense of her customers’ needs. This noted relationship-builder also gives back to the cable community, volunteering at SCTE, WICT and The Cable Center.

What’s the best trick for achieving life balance?
Sometimes when a big personal event comes along, hopefully you are working in a situation that allows you to help those you love by having an employer that will let you take some time off, telecommuting or think outside the box in other ways.
How do you define success in the workplace?
For me, working for companies that encouraged time to volunteer in industry related organizations like SCTE and WICT, which provide additional pathways to stay current with technology and to network with women in our industry.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
The best parts of all my jobs over the past 40 years have been working with hard-working talented people, mostly male engineers, as they built cable TV systems into what we have today. I loved the people, the challenges, and the success of our industry when I had friends that said cable would never work.
