A Bit About Kathy

An action shot of Kathy Darling taking a jumpshot against Uruguay in a team handball match.

When I am not coding WooCommerce-related things, my other career is as an international athlete. From a purely logical standpoint it has been a terrible career choice because it tends to pay negatively and has put a lot of wear and tear on my body. There have been times when I’ve seriously considered buying a cane because my feet hurt so badly. There was also that time I dislocated my sterno-clavicular joint and couldn’t raise my arm over my head. My clavicles are permanently uneven now. But at the same time, I’ve represented my country in international sports for 10 years, which is something very few people get to do. WooCommerce definitely pays the bills, but as one of my teammates put it, handball is my side hustle.
