Cathy Sullivan


Software development and user experience design professional with 14+ years of experience.

I am a Senior Program Manager on the Visual Studio Platform team. I joined Microsoft in 2006 and worked as a developer in Microsoft IT building enterprise applications. I joined the Visual Studio team in 2011 and have worked on a variety of areas including C#/Visual Basic IDE, Visual Studio Shell and IDE Experiences. When I’m not working on improving user experiences in the IDE, you can find me speaking on what’s new in Visual Studio at conferences like DevConnections (now DevIntersection), VSLive!, BUILD and on Channel9.

Class notes

Cathy Sullivan and familyI’ve been living out in Seattle, WA since graduation and married a fellow CCIS class of 2005 alum Kevin Sullivan. We love to hike, backpack, camp and ski the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest! Recently a new little adventurer joined our team—Colin—and we’re having a blast with him!
