Michelle Press Rubin, JD, BCC is an attorney who recognized early on that her joy comes from helping people reach their goals by identifying and unlocking their underlying strengths and passions. After close to ten years of practicing law and working with more than 1,000 clients, she discovered that connecting with people is what really fuels her. Michelle loves finding creative solutions to help people solve complex problems, often by motivating clients to figure out what they really want and how to achieve their goals.
After practicing law for a number of years to raise her children, Michelle noticed that many of her peers were similarly situated – stuck in roles or career paths that were unfulfilling. Many either wanted to pivot their career path or reenter the workforce after a short or lengthy career pause (often after raising children or other caregiving roles). This led her to create an informal career support group where all brainstormed about ways to help each other achieve the necessary momentum to embrace change and identify and pursue fulfilling career and life options. Momentum was born out of a love of helping others figure out what sparks them, embrace change, and identify and ultimately achieve their career and life goals.
