As an international leader, best-selling author, and keynote speaker, Simone Knego has the uncanny ability to both motivate and inspire others to be the good in the world. If you were to ask her, Simone would tell you that she leads an ordinary life filled with extraordinary moments. As a mother to both dogs and children, a serial entrepreneur, and a popular speaker and author, Simone treasures each small moment she gets to make a difference. Splitting her time between her family, businesses, and personal growth, she’s realized that the small choices she makes every day to do good actually have the power to inspire others to see the extraordinary moments in their own ordinary lives.
In her new best-selling book, The Extraordinary Unordinary You, Simone details her journey of adopting three of her six children, recounts her climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, and shares all of the funny, scary, and inspiring stories that came along the way. Simone believes deeply that changing the way you see yourself can help the world around you change. Through her book, she hopes to show people how they are unordinary in the best possible way. She knows that through these realizations, people can redefine what they believe themselves capable of and impact the world the way they were created to.
Simone holds both a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and a Master of Accounting from the University of Florida. In 2015, she climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise funds and awareness for the Livestrong Foundation. Simone served as the 2018-2019 Co-Chair of the Jewish Federations of North America’s National Young Leadership Cabinet and has travelled around the world on several philanthropic, international missions, including medical missions with her husband Rob, who is a Neurosurgeon. They have been married for 27 years and have six children.
