Live well, laugh often, love much
I started out as an Air Force brat in Hawaii & now live in McKinney, Texas. Along the way & in between, I grew up, spent many years in the casual dining segment in operations, training and franchise, and started a family. I currently work for a uniform manufacturing company & am learning amazing details of this new business venture. My biggest claim to fame is my family, my husband and two wonderful kids!

Career Paths - My Personal Tribute to Norman Brinker

Posted on June 19, 2009 at 9:11am 1 Comment

If anyone had told me when I graduated from college many moons ago that in 2009 I would be working as a Director of Membership Relations for a company called People Report, I would have told them they were insane. First of all, People Report did not even exist when I graduated from college in 1992. I am sure Joni Thomas Doolin, our CEO, had thought of it already since she is amazing at coming up with these unique ideas long before the rest of us do. And secondly, I had my dream job. I was going… Continue

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" positioned 50,000 km from a telescope to enable imaging of planets about distant stars. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
