||Senior Programmer Analyst
||Robbie Bingler, is a programmer in language de Jour, database and
interface developer, bug wrangler, and all around integration specialist
to "make things work." He is also the person on the other end of Keswick's leash.
||Shayne enjoys everything but work. Hobbies include woodworking, growing
fruit, building things, watching TV, and dreaming. Has the ability
to befriend scoundrels and rascals in addition to kings and queens
- though the opportunity to meet kings and queens hasn't materialized
yet. And he loves his family.
||Cindy is IATH's resident XML geek, as well as being
the backup sysadmin. Her children take up most of her
world, so if you ask her what's new, be prepared for a
list of developmental milestones, cute mannerisms, and
not-so-cute tantrums. In her spare time, she's become
an online gaming geek. She also plays softball (and
volleyball), and she's always looking for women to
play on her team - so if you play softball (or even
just want to learn), give her a shout. She's willing
to beg, if necessary.
||Keswick, a well-bred Virginia gentleman, is a proud graduate of the rigorous Service Dogs of Virginia training program.
He is partnered with Robbie Bingler, and his duties include canine and small animal liaison services, 3D object retrieval,
real-time socialization routines and social networks, and visitor querying and investigation services.
He is also demonstrating an unexpected facility for languages, having rapidly acquired an admirable grasp of Italian.

||Administrative Procedures Specialist
||Joy is the heart and soul of IATH and keeps everyone happy (she IS

practical jokes and cheese fries.
||Scholarly and Technical Communications Officer
||Sarah has worked at IATH, on and off, since 1995. Her current job has
a variety of tasks, including project management, XML mark-up, and
technical writing. She also studies opera and has her black
belt in karate, so that what cannot be gained from logical persuasion
can be gained through hysterical sobbing or an intimidating glare.
