Since moving to North Carolina 3 years ago, I’ve been educating companies near and far about the benefits of locating in RTP and then helping them make it happen. I’m an MBA student at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business school as well, so when I manage to nail down free-time, you can find me running the greenway in Raleigh, sprucing up my yard or searching for delicious greasy spoons with my husband!

My passion is keeping up with the growth and development of the Research Triangle region. By day this means providing support for RTP construction projects and the new RTP Master Plan, but I also enjoy checking out the newest restaurants and galleries in Downtown Raleigh and Downtown Durham. I’ve been a Triangle resident most of my life and I’m always excited to write about its success.

Originally from Hawaii, I now call Durham my home and Duke my alma mater. I work with the @rtp Committees to foster a spirit of community, sustainability, innovation and collaboration, and try to share those things with the community when I blog. During my off hours, you can find me running on the American Tobacco Trail or an RTP trail, catching a show at DPAC, or dining at a great local restaurant

A Durham import via the Big Easy, I write about RTP partnerships & events, and all things food and cultural in the Triangle. When I am not blogging, tweeting or updating RTP’s Facebook page, my favorite things to do in the area are go for a run on the Duke Forest trail and pick up some great local fare at the Durham farmers market.

I tend to write about issues that will impact RTP's future competitiveness, but every once in a while get to write about fun things like robots, the RTP community, or my friends doing great work in the for-benefit/fourth sector here. I got to NC by way of DC and Phoenix. When I'm not writing about RTP, my time revolves around my family and dogs and finding new places in the Triangle to explore. (That's my buddy Harry in the photo).
