Keynote Speaker

Kelly Jandernoa, Co-Founder of the Red Glasses Movement
Kelly Jandernoa is an inspirational speaker, an oncology nurse, a spouse to Carl, and mother to Tommy, Samantha, and Audrey. She is co-founder of the Red Glasses Movement, an organization started in honor of her daughter Audrey Louise who died suddenly in 2018. Audrey was born with Down syndrome and a congenital heart defect, but these were not the only things that defined her. Audrey was defined by her bright Red Glasses, her contagious smile, and lack of inhibitions. The RGM is Audrey's living legacy and has distributed over 15,000 Red Glasses worldwide. Kelly's presentation tells the story of Audrey's life, the RGM, and the parallels that exist between them. She will explain the mission of RGM and how each of us can live boldly, love big, and pass it on in our daily life to make a difference for ourselves and others.
