"I am impressed you read that far into my bio. Just realized how outdated it is - I cut and pasted it from an old promo. I miss the weather in Miami & the football games!"

Biography
Kristie Samuel Campbell is a native of Effingham, IL and graduate of the University of Miami, FL where she received a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Math. In 1996, she began her career with Fidelity Investments, quickly moving to the coveted Equities Desk and in 1998 she became Fidelity’s youngest trader. Kristie joined the structured equities team and was responsible for the execution of programs trades ranging from a few hundred thousand to several billion dollars.

Disillusioned by the tragedy of September 11th, Kristie took a leave of absence, traveling to Puerto Rico where she met and fell in love with her husband, Niall. She resigned from Fidelity, choosing to remain with Niall in Puerto Rico where she began her induction into the restaurant business.

Kristie’s business savvy and newfound appreciation for the culinary world makes for the perfect professional partnership in her role as Firefly’s CEO. She manages all areas of the restaurant exclusive of the kitchen. Kristie also serves as head cheerleader, greeting guests, motivating the staff and setting high standards of customer service to insure that all guests have an enjoyable experience at the firefly grill.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?

TED: David Sengeh: The sore problem of prosthetic limbs - David Sengeh (2014)

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab.
