In this edition of Staff Profiles we check in with Kayt from the support team who will be celebrating a birthday on Sunday! 

What is your name? 

My name is Kisha. My friends call me Kayt.

Where do you live?

I'm an American living in Brno, Czech Republic. I LOVE living in Brno because of the nature and the culture, and I'm a hop, skip, and jump away from Prague, Vienna, Bratislava and Berlin. For me living in Czech Republic has been a learning experience. I totally stepped outside of my comfort zone when making the move--everything was unfamiliar and new. It's been an amazing adventure so far!

How long have you worked for Chess.com and what do you do?

I actually started out on the site as a moderator ages ago! I think back in 2009 or 2010? It's been so long, I can't really remember. Originally, I was known as Veggiegirlie. I've been employed as staff since February 2015. As a member of the support team, I try to be helpful on the site :) If you have a question, reach out to me! I love meeting new people and like to believe that I'm a helpful person.

What do you like about working at Chess.com?

I really like focusing on people's issues and trying to solve them, communicating with people from all over the world, learning chess. I also like the flexibility of working remotely and the team (not just support but all of staff). I am a very lucky girl to be working with such a cohesive and caring group.

What are your other interests and hobbies?

I love to create things -- I write stuff (fiction, nonfiction, and screenplays), make music, knit, play video games, swim, and run (very slowly). I like to hike and want to learn how to climb in the near future. I also play chess :)

If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

I'd love to time travel OR be able to breathe underwater

0-0 or 0-0-0?

0-0-0 every single time.

Kayt. Another lovely tree in the forest. :)

Thank you so much for all you do for the site, Kayt! And thank you everyone for reading!
