Kendra Benson Lead Developer
Keeps Me Going: One-On-One Time With My Children, My Inspiring Husband, Getting Outside & Exploring, Crossfit and Paleo.
Kendra was born and raised in NE Florida. When she was 28, she moved to Minnesota for 3 years and now lives in Fort Collins, CO. After starting web development for a personal family website, she had a desire to learn more. She is self-taught and continues to learn new techniques as the technology advances. Kendra says “I have always been interested in the arts, design is always where my heart was. But when I started writing code for websites, there was so much more satisfaction for me in creating an entire website with just letters and numbers. Although I still love design, my true talent lies in coding.”
Before Kendra began developing websites, she worked as an accountant at a community college in Florida for 5 years. Working day in and day out with numbers was an important stepping stone in her progression to web development. Kendra worked on and off building sites for family, friends, and small clients for 6 years before working full-time for Spark Logix studios when it was founded in 2010. Kendra is now the Lead Developer for the company.
Kendra was married in 2003 and has 3 children.
Ben Heath Lead WordPress Coordinator
Keeps Me Going: My Wife and Daughter, My Guitar, Great Music, and the Ever-Changing Tech World.
Ben was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota in 1980. He later moved to Florida where he met his wife and spent 10 years. There, he worked in the civil engineering field as a road and bridge construction inspector. He oversaw the work being done and was responsible for its adherence to contract documents. During that time he studied math and computer science at UNF, and felt there was something else out there he would enjoy more. He grew up with computers as his father was a computer science university professor at Saint Cloud State University in Minnesota.
Getting involved in search engine optimization was an evolving process. He had the internet in his home as soon as it was available because of his father’s profession. From there to his studies in college, the interest developed into the field of SEO and analytics. It is an ever changing field of technology and remains, to him, ever interesting.

Keeps Me Going: My Husband and Son (the yangs to my yin), the Outdoors, Dogs (limiting myself to two is a challenge), and New Discoveries.

After graduating high school in 1998, she couldn’t deny her entrepreneurial spirit and immediately set to work launching several small businesses, including a concessions and commercial cleaning company. Always having a love for learning, Suzanne continued her education at Coastal Carolina University and graduated in 2009 with a degree in education with focuses in history and science. After teaching for a year, she decided to nurture a talent for writing that she discovered while at the university and, since 2010, has worked as a freelance writer creating thousands of articles, blog postings, pages of website content, advertising copy, and more. At Spark Logix Studios, Suzanne enjoys writing on a variety of subjects as it satisfies her eclectic tastes and fondness for learning.
