About Amber Selking, Ph.D.

As a former soccer player at the University of Notre Dame where she graduated with a Management Consulting degree, Dr. Selking started her career in human resources with a global manufacturing company. After recognizing a similar performance dynamic in business as she experienced in sport, she returned to graduate school to better understand the art and science of human high performance. She received a master’s degree in Sport & Performance Psychology from the University of Denver, and her PhD in Applied Sport & Performance Psychology from the University of Missouri. Dr. Selking founded the Selking Performance Group, where their mission is to help individuals, sports teams, and business organizations unleash performance excellence by tapping into the power of Mindset and Leadership. She speaks with organizations around the world on these topics, and has served as the mental performance consultant to the Notre Dame Football team. She has also served as an adjunct professor in the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame. Amber joined Lippert Components, Inc. in 2018, a publicly-traded, global manufacturing company headquartered in Elkhart, IN where she serves as the Vice President of Leadership & Culture Development.

From the LockerRoom to the BoardRoom, Dr. Selking takes a top-down, bottom-up, and culturally relevant approach to high performance. Her expertise is in optimizing human performance by partnering with leaders to build systems that are most conducive to high performance, teaching people about how their brain works, and providing strategies to build mindsets that facilitate success. Dr. Selking also hosts a podcast called “Building Championship Mindsets,” which has over 200k downloads, and has been utilized around the world, including Johannesburg, South Africa to build productive mindsets in their young people. In 2020, she was recognized as one of Michiana’s “40 under 40,” which shines the spotlight on 40 of the region's most talented and dedicated young executives, professionals, and leaders who demonstrate career success and community engagement, before the age of 40.

Amber grew up raising livestock in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania, and now lives in South Bend, IN with her husband, Aaron, and their Doberman Pinscher, Rockne.
