Adventurer, best-selling author, and today’s Women in Leadership Institute™ keynote faculty member Alison Levine has literally reached the top of the highest peaks on every continent.

Levine currently serves as an adjunct professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point where she lectures on the topic of leadership.
