Kelly Gering, MA


Shared Story, LLC, founder Kelly Gering, believes in the power of difference. Rooted in the understanding that vulnerability and dialogue can transform individuals, families, organizations, and the world, she created Shared Story, LLC - a private conflict resolution firm that provides mediation, facilitation, training and conflict coaching.
Complementing her private practice, Kelly serves as adjunct faculty at Creighton University’s Heider College of Business teaching negotiation and conflict resolution graduate courses including dynamics of conflict, facilitative conflict engagement, family systems in conflict and mediation to graduate students.
Kelly serves on the Nebraska Judicial Branch’s Office of Dispute Resolution panel as a family mediator and is a past board member of the Nebraska Mediation Association as the chair of the Continuing Mediator Education Committee. She currently serves as a cohort member of an international mediation Reflective Practice group.
Kelly holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy & Sociology from Lake Forest College, and a Master of Arts degree in Conflict Resolution from Antioch University McGregor.
Certified in basic, family, and specialized alternative dispute mediation training with a focus in high conflict dispute resolution, Kelly believes that at the core, we yearn to be heard and understood by the other.
When she’s not mediating other people’s conflicts, she’s navigating her own…with her husband, Ray, college freshman son, Sam, 11th grade daughter, Kate and 7th grade daughter, Claire.
