Kerri Walsh Jennings
Kerri Walsh Jennings is an American professional beach volleyball player, five-time Olympian, three-time Olympic gold medalist and one-time Olympic bronze medalist. Today, Kerri has her sights set on winning gold at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
Kerri grew up in the inspiring mountains of Northern California where she fell in love with nature, competition, sports and chasing her dreams. The Walsh family (and its various extensions) is large, loving, fiercely competitive, extremely loyal and very family-focused. They set the tone and Kerri followed. Kerri played high school volleyball and basketball for Archbishop Mitty in San Jose, where she earned a scholarship to Stanford University and graduated with a BA in American Studies. Following her collegiate career, Kerri played in her first Olympic Games in 2000, representing the U.S. on the indoor volleyball team. Team USA took home fourth place and Kerri then immediately transferred to beach volleyball.
Kerri is married to fellow professional beach volleyball player, Casey Jennings, and together they have three beautiful children. Kerri and Casey share many passions and their central focus in life together has centered around the love they share for each other, their beautiful family, their beloved sport of beach volleyball, kicking ass and personal development. Both Kerri and Casey aim for sustained excellence and know that the thoughtful and intentional development of their bodies, minds and spirits for the rest of their lives will help them to achieve what they want in life.
Kerri has always been blessed with an amazing family and wonderful teammates, coaches, partners and friends. This is one of the primary reasons why she has been able to “succeed” in life. Her team at p1440 is no exception, and she looks forward to creating a dynamic, prolific and sustainable future for her sport. She hopes p1440 will bring a “better,” more inspired life for the generations of humans who will be positively and powerfully affected by p1440 and their goal to help people live each of their 1,440 minutes in the day with love, intention, joy and purpose.
