Alexandra (Ali) Jensen, Founder/Author
Ali Jensen loves life, adventure, and the idea that each and every one of us can leave a lasting impact on this sometimes crazy world. Since graduating with a Master’s Degree in Organizational Leadership from Vanderbilt University, Ali has worked with some of the best and brightest at Deloitte (US, UK and Global Member Firms). Although she considers herself a corporate road warrior and loves the constant challenge and growth afforded to her by her “day job”, she has always had a lingering passion to write a children’s book (and try to make a positive impact on tiny humans). When she was blessed with her first daughter while living in the UK, she seriously considered the idea. When she was blessed with her second daughter, she knew the time had come to make it happen.
As a mother of two young daughters, she could not stop thinking about how important it is to instill confidence in them early on, and for them to know that they can be anything they want to be when they "grow up". With that thought, she launched Knows No Bounds Books & Co in 2018 with a mission of encouraging and empowering girls from a young age to believe in themselves and know no bounds in life. The books aim to reinforce positive messaging around the possibilities and power of being a little lady who can dream big. All of the characters in her new book (Anything I Dream) are based off of real people in her life that she knows, loves, and respects (e.g. an architect, a baker, a teacher, a businesswoman, etc.). She’s inspired that those she’s surrounded by have dreamt of their own paths and fiercely taken them on - they have set an amazing example for her daughters (and kiddos throughout the world). She is grateful.
Ali currently spends her (early) mornings training for triathlons, her days focused on strategic project management @ Deloitte, and her nights/weekends hanging out with her amazing hubby and two daughters (likely zipping around the neighborhood in their new T-34 Landspeeder).
