Irene Woerner is no stranger to start ups (she’s built a few) and is a certified space expert; she was the principal investigator on research and ground software on the Pluto missions at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory AND, while at NASA, she led a team of researchers on advanced information systems.
Currently, Irene is the Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of emTRUTH, because she believes in the transformative power of innovative technologies combined with people of excellence to make it happen. Prior to emTRUTH, Irene was a technology consultant to Fortune 500 companies.
Beth and Irene finally meet in person at SPACECOM Expo, and share a casual conversation that includes:
- What emTruth works to provide: technology that self-detects and self-fixes devices and cyber security in the world and in the aerospace industry.
- How influential a summer camp opportunity (in Hawaii) was for Irene’s future and love for science…
- What it’s like to be able to select the people you WANT to work with, and what happens when you love the work you do… and
- About working at NASA, why playing softball at NASA was so important, and how having the support from your family helps encourage career success
“I founded the company on two principals. One, I wanted to do something that I believed in. Two, I wanted to do it with people that I really liked.” -Irene Woerner from Casual Space Podcast
