Born in Kannapolis, Safrit is president of Castle and Cooke North Carolina. In that capacity she oversees the building of the North Carolina Research Campus and Castle and Cooke's other developments in the state.

This interview is organized around several main themes: the potential impact of NCRC, the difficult (but unbelievably quick) construction, the overall arc of Safrit's life and career, and the difficulties of balancing that career with family life.
