Biography

Linda Armstrong Kelly is a shining example of spectacular triumph against incredible odds. From high school dropout to mother of Lance Armstrong, seven-time Tour De France champion and cancer survivor, Ms. Armstorng’s story motivates people to achieve their own dreams, regardless of the obstacles they face.

Ms. Armstrong’s life is a lesson in self-determination and hope. In her book, No Mountain High Enough-Raising Lance, Raising Me (Broadway Books; 2005), she shares her life experiences as a young, single mom raising her unstoppable baby boy.

She spent 15 years demonstrating her strength, positive attitude, and survival skills.

At the core of her inspirational messages are the importance of dedication and hard work in accomplishing one’s goals.

Ms. Armstrong is proud to be a member of the National Speakers Association. She also assists nonprofit organizations with fundraising, is an active volunteer, and serves as an Ambassador for The Lance Armstrong Foundation.
