About the Author:

 Kelly Rippon started her consulting company, Authentic Change, Inc., in 2006 with the mission of “Changing the world one conversation at a time.”  She's traveled extensively across Asia, Europe, and throughout the United States speaking to and interviewing hundreds of people about how the influences they met had shaped their perspectives.  Those conversations combined with her work as a college instructor, corporate trainer and single mother of six incredible children, including her oldest son, Olympic medalist, Adam, prompted her to write Parent Up  (Sourcebooks 2020) an empowering book about developing an effective leadership perspective, while building resiliency, empathy and optimism.
