Berta Arzate is a native Californian who grew up with one foot steadily planted on a skateboard. Her early years spent building ramps and other death traps led her to a career in Industrial Design. Berta enjoys building models by hand and working with wood, as early on she was torn between her love of furniture making and design. In the end, Industrial Design won her heart, by being most encouraging of her curiosity and love of making. In her spare time, Berta spends time with her wife and four small chihuahuas.

Outside of academics, they are an active social rights activist and patient educator, particularly on behalf of the LGBTQ community. *Katja’s preferred pronoun is the gender-neutral ‘they.’
