Michelle speaks to audiences from personal experience. For years Michelle was extremely frustrated, working at a job she detested, spending her days feeling overworked and unappreciated. She felt stuck. Then at the age of 32, after pivotal conversations with her husband and close friends, she decided to ‘hit the change button’ and embarked on a journey to transform her life.

So, with a full-time job, pre-school age children at home and the support and encouragement of her husband, Michelle signed up for her master’s studies in psychology. She found herself setting alarms for 3:00 a.m. to study until 6:00 a.m. when she would wake the baby and start her work day.

Michelle did not let circumstance stand in the way of making a change in her life. Although she worked twice as hard, she had a challenge and found her days more fulfilling. Michelle did what it took to complete her courses and received her Master of Psychology, then starting her PhD when she was seven months pregnant. She became a mom for the third time during her first semester of doctoral studies.

The day Michelle became Dr. Michelle Rozen was not a day just about receiving her PhD. It was a day of celebration for perseverance and success against seemingly insurmountable odds. Through her scientific study of the human mind and its functions, coupled with her personal experience, Dr. Rozen became fascinated with mindset, behavior, purpose and perseverance. She discovered her passion to help others understand the science of the mind when it comes to managing our day-to-day, rather than being managed by it. This passion became Michelle’s life mission and the message she shares with audiences, as well as in the media and in her books.
