Deanna Bledsoe

Founder and CEO

Deanna started her career in IT almost 30 years ago as a Junior Programmer and worked her way up to become the IT Director for Delaware's Treasury Department. 


During the Covid-19 pandemic she started teaching coding as a way for her 3rd grade daughter's Girl Scout Troop to earn STEM badges.  Those experiences transformed into Kai Coders.  Deanna retired early from her role with Treasury to focus solely on Kai Coders  and getting coding out to ALL kids.

Fun Fact: Deanna's wrote her first program in 8th grade using the programming language BASIC.  The program printed a sequence of 'X's on the screen in the shape of a Christmas tree! 🎄
