Jen Sharp, successful businesswoman and entrepreneur, and one of the country’s leading female skydivers, shares the lessons and experience of more than 24 years of skydiving and 18 years in business, drawing analogies to the field and history of skydiving. She has more than 3,000 jumps and is a certified USPA AFF instructor & course director, Strong Tandem Master, FAA Master parachute rigger and highly regarded dropzone owner. She earned her degree in Education from Kansas State University and taught in public schools and at the University level. After earning her degree in Computer Information Systems, she established her own e-learning and web programming company. She also has earned her Masters in Business Adminstration from Ottawa University.

Ms. Sharp has presented short half hour to 1 hour topics on general skydiving as well as full 3 day seminar at venues such as the International convention for Parachute Industry Association, USPA's Dropzone Owner Conference, and even at the Topeka Kansas Capitol. Other smaller venues have included grade schools, high schools, senior centers, aerobatic clubs, community organizations and others. She is often interviewed for articles and educational papers, radio shows, blogs and more. Her first book is set to be published in 2014. Her audience varies from non-jumpers who know nothing of skydiving to long-time jumpers with instructional ratings. Topics presented are similarly eclectic:
• General Skydiving Information
• Introductory Skydiving Training

• Advanced Techniques for Education & Training
• Skydiving Gear & Rigging
• Problem Solving
• Result Creating
• Time Management
• Awareness Management
• Risk Management & Assessment

Most striking, however, is Ms. Sharp's ability to relate skydiving to real life. Even if you never make a jump, you can relate to her humorous anedocotes and inspiring accounts.
