Kinsman consistently keeps herself current on architecture developments and cable technology trends. Her large network of contacts within the cable industry enables her to identify customers’ needs. And her involvement in various industry groups, including her volunteer work with the SCTE, WICT and the Cable Center, has earned her respect throughout the industry. Her cable career started in 1972. “It was an all male engineering community and together we built some amazing cable systems at the time. I learned from them, listened, remembered, and implemented,” she says.

How do you define a successful career?

I consider my career in the Cable TV industry, starting in 1972, a success for many reasons.  I found my true vocation, cable TV system design, working with some incredible engineers.  It was an all-male engineering community and together we built some amazing cable systems at the time.  I learned from them, listened, remembered, and implemented. I found SCTE and expanded my knowledge and paid it forward by volunteering for over 30 years. Teamwork, knowledge, networking, being honest, producing the best product I could no matter who I worked for.
