Ingrid was born & raised in Vienna, Austria. She was modeling throughout Europe, did a play in Vienna, & had some small parts in a couple of movies until she moved to New York at age 30, where she got married. After being a wife for 17 years she realized that she had given up her identity and needed to start all over again.

She moved to Los Angeles in 1996 managing the back office for a dentist, moved on to Family Ford downtown & after a couple years ended up in Real Estate, also managing a couple of buildings.

Starting in 2008 she participated in the Senior Games for 4 years in track & field earning a bronze and a silver for California. Nationwide, she came in 6th and 7th. During the years of rigorous training she finally connected to the physical pain her father afflicted on her.

She was abused by her father when he first set eyes on her at age 3. Her saving grace was that he passed away when she was almost 18 and she felt free.

Ingrid reconnected with Poetry, after which she wrote "What's your Monster's Name?" where she interviewed quite a few people telling her how they applied a certain life skill to overcome difficult situations. "Triumph", her latest book is about her own journey. She is currently editing a work book and guide "7 Steps to Taming Your Monster". A couple of other projects are also in the works.

Her website is Ingridkern-author.com and you can take a peek at the books.
