Karen Tilstra, co-founder and director of Florida Hospital's Innovation Lab, (FHIL), is passionate about helping people discover their own innate creativity.

Karen is an Educational Psychologist who holds a doctoral degree in Creativity, Innovation and Leadership. She has worked in both secondary and higher education in Asia and the United States. She believes she has learned more from students than they have learned from her.

Karen enjoys writing, spending time with family and friends, and watching a great movie. She is also known for her idiosyncratic pets, including the pet donkey who taught her that nothing is impossible and her stray dog who resembles a cross between an opossum, raccoon and weasel. She currently lives in Florida with her artist husband and three sons.

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.)
