Entrepreneur, academic, wife and mom. I have founded, built, sold and been challenged by businesses since I was 25. Trained as a graphic designer, recently completing an MBA and working away on a PHD in Entrepreneurship. I am passionately exploring Leadership, in theory and in real life. I serve on the boards of a few public companies, love our small business in Costa Rica, am the Global Chair of the Leadership Committee for Entrepreneur’s Organization and volunteer in my local community. I am halfway through my journey to learn, love and laugh with amazing people from all over the planet, swapping stories and experiences to learn and grow.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
