Julie Lythcott-Haims believes in humans and is deeply interested in what gets in our way. Her work encompasses writing, speaking, public service, and activism.

She is a New York Times bestselling author of books on human development, a TED speaker, a former Stanford dean, and a lawyer, and she holds degrees from Stanford University (BA), Harvard Law (JD), and California College of the Arts (MFA). She serves on numerous nonprofit boards whose work focuses on equity, education, youth, wellness, and the arts.

Her critically-acclaimed books, "How to Raise an Adult" and "Your Turn: How to Be an Adult," have been called a “groundbreakingly frank” guide to adulthood while her poetry memoir Real American illustrates her experience as a Black and biracial person in white spaces. 

Julie lives in Palo Alto, California with her partner of over thirty years, their itinerant young adults, and her mother. She is a member of the Palo Alto City Council.
