About Kaitlin

I love to improve inefficient processes to help make people's everyday lives easier. As a result, I have founded Apte to create a comprehensive software solution for the unique needs of nonprofits.

I have spent my entire life involved with nonprofits in numerous ways. With Apte, I am focused on building software systems that help nonprofits manage their day-to-day data needs efficiently and effectively. Helping them get back to focusing on their missions.

For the past six years, I have served on both the financial side and donor management side of nonprofits. I have lived their everyday challenges and decided that a better way was needed. Prior, to my nonprofit work, I worked in finance in New York City for six years, starting at JPMorgan in investment banking.

Originally, I was a ballerina for 20 years, turning 'pro' and leaving home to dance at the age of 16. The work ethic and daily sacrifices of a ballerina have defined and shaped who I am today.
