More about Kaitlyn
Kaitlyn Hova is a professional violinist, composer, full stack web developer, designer, neuroscientist, and core team member of Women Who Code. She is also a synesthete–someone with the ability to see sounds, due to a neurological phenomenon in which the stimulation of one sense triggers an instantaneous, involuntary experience in another. Together with her husband, Matt, Kaitlyn co-founded the Synesthesia Network, a resource dedicated to helping people with synesthesia share their experiences and connect with researchers. Professionally, Kaitlyn has played violin for performances with Michael Bublé, Trans Siberian Orchestra, Mannheim Steamroller, Mary J. Blige, Josh Groban, Rod Stewart and more. “The Hovas" are also the creators of the Hovalin, an open source, 3D printable acoustic violin that helps STEM programs print their school’s music program.
