History

Amoblix was created by combining some of the resources of Aphinity Solutions, an Overland Park, KS firm started in 2000 that provides business and IT consulting services, with a select group of former employees of Little Springs Design, a Lawrence, KS company started in 2001 that specialized in User Experience consulting and Design Specification.  Amoblix has purchased the assets of Little Springs Design and continues its tradition of being a thought leader.

Cathy Schonberger, Co-Founder / Project and Program Management
Project management consists of two things to Ms. Schonberger: Take Ownership, and Deliver.

Cathy has demonstrated these principles in her career by taking on ownership of processes above and beyond her job description. When she noticed that mistakes were being repeated in her team's release management process, she created a post project review and best practices implementation. When application development processes were impacted negatively by misunderstanding of the network deliverables, she implemented a technical PMO to address the gap in communication.
 
Cathy will work tirelessly until the project is implemented successfully.
