Kerry Byrne is the much-loved founder of The Long Distance Grandparent.

Kerry Byrne, PhD

As a research PhD who’s studied aging and care for over 20 years, Kerry has a firm & well-evidenced professional standpoint on the important role that grandparents play within the lives of their grandchildren, families and wider society. She is a passionate believer in the adage that “Grandparents Matter”.

Add to this Kerry’s own personal perspective of being the parent caught in the middle – she’s also a busy mum of two lively kids who live at distance from their grandparents and she previously spent 5 years living as an expat in Dubai and the US.

As Kerry persistently worked to support her own grandparents from a distance, she found herself creating the distinctive approach that forms the basis of The Long Distance Grandparent today. In 2019, she set up The Long Distance Grandparent to fulfil her vision of a world where distance doesn’t have to mean distant, where grandparents & their families can build strong, loving bonds that cross borders, transcend time-zones and help make our world a more compassionate place.
