Simone Knego

Author, Mother, Speaker

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
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 traveled 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
