Hi, We're Matt Demecs and Misty Milner!

Matt spent the last two decades working in a children's hospital as a Pediatric Cardiac Sonographer, which means he has a talent for helping wiggly little people stay still and calm while he takes pictures of their hearts. Matt enjoyed his work, but the emotional toll of caring for very sick children began to wear on his spirit.

While searching for a new career, he discovered Challenge Island®. The unique program intrigued him-he'd never seen anything like it! After observing the magic in a live class he was hooked, AND he discovered he loves teaching! He really enjoys the way the program combines his passion for science with exciting, imaginative, hands-on projects that help kids uncover their own talents and strengths during the process. Matt now visits schools, churches, and businesses all over the Texas Hill Country telling everyone he meets about the award-winning S.T.E.A.M. curriculum that teaches young people the 21st Century Skills they need to succeed. Today's students are tomorrow's leaders, and Matt wants to prepare them with the communication, collaboration, and critical thinking capabilities necessary to help them confidently reach their full potential in our tech-driven world.

Misty is also a CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. She is the glue that holds us all together! Misty handles ALL our Challenge Island financial operations and will be the one you talk to when it's time to pay for that award-winning S.T.E.A.M curriculum we delivered to your event!

Misty is a Native Texan but lived in Colorado for several years before returning to Texas to be near her family. She enjoys living in Fair Oaks Ranch where she can easily get to San Antonio for work but still be close to Boerne and all its charm. She loves to travel, and will be heading for Hawaii this fall to cross another destination off her Bucket List!

Did you know that Challenge Island isn't just for kids? Misty enjoys delivering our STEAMbuilding© Challenges to adult "students" in small business and big corporations who need a relational reboot or an orientation to bring a new team together quickly. Our action-packed projects are FUN and will leave your company team members asking for more! 🤩 We are so grateful that Misty is an energetic multitasker who can manage her medical career AND keep us all fiscally fit while we do what we love most...teach necessary 21st Century Skills to all your amazing kiddos!
