Kelly Clark

Three-time Olympic medalist
At thirty-five years of age, Kelly is a five time Olympian, three-time Olympic medalist and the winningest athlete in snowboarding history. She is a trailblazer and dominant force in the sport of snowboarding, continually innovating and “raising her own bar” in every competition, but her success is more than medals on a shelf.  Kelly’s pursuit of greatness inspires others to push the envelope of innovation. She wants her life to be the message.

It is no secret that Kelly is a woman of faith and purpose and it is seen in her life. She consistently makes it about more than just herself and strives to inspire people everywhere to live their dreams. Kelly wants the height of her success to be the foundation from which others are launched. “The greatest legacy I could leave would be to see my ceiling be the floor for the next generation. It is bigger than me, but it can start with me.” I have found in a performance-driven culture, it is difficult to find true meaning apart from success on the podium, but I want people to see that success is an inside job.” Her authenticity and integrity is refreshing, piercing through the noise.
