I would like to share a short story about my marriage to fellow Secret Lifer, Colin Angle (CEO of iRobot and Extreme Athlete). Colin and I were married on August 20th at Kona Village on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. We were so excited to have our closest friends and family in attendance. The rehearsal, ceremony, and honeymoon in Bora Bora were fantastic. I feel so very blessed and lucky to have met Colin and to now be his wife. I also must mention that my connection with “The Secret Life of Scientists and Engineers” happened as a result of meeting Colin. Colin had been asked to be on the show. While filming, he was asked if he knew of any other scientists with interesting “secret” lives who might be good for the series. He and I had been dating for several months, so he provided the producers with my name. They called me and I was fortunate enough to be selected for the series.
It was a pleasure to work with the entire staff responsible for putting together the series. Their attention to detail, their humor, and their professionalism made working with the team a great pleasure. The series is fantastic. It is such an honor to be a part of the project.
