After a 16 year stint in aerospace engineering, I decided to retire early and live a life underwater as a scuba instructor on Kauai. I quickly discovered that, while fascinated by life under water, this chosen career was not mentally challenging enough for my over-active brain. After moving through many non-technical jobs and obtaining two master’s degrees, I was driving my husband crazy with discussions of technical, scientific, and business topics. He suggested watching TED talks and I was hooked.

A few years and many, many TED and TEDx talks later, I decided that I needed to bring this amazing conference to the Big Island just as Oahu and Maui were bringing it to their islands. The Big Island has so much to offer the world and everyone living and working on the island. My goal is to make “Ideas Worth Spreading” contagious to move Hawaii forward into an amazing future through community conversations and action in which everyone can participate.
