About Carin Rockind
Carin Rockind is a happiness expert, media personality, and the creator of PurposeGirl, a movement to empower purpose-driven living for girls and women. Having survived domestic abuse, divorce, and armed robbery, she teaches women to fight for their happiness. Her philosophy is simple: She believes that purpose, above all else, fuels happiness—and she’s devoted her career to studying it, teaching it, and coaching individuals and teams to creating fulfilling lives and successful careers. She is also the founder of #ThisIs40, a movement, a community of women in their 40’s who are ready to make a change and TAKE CONTROL of their lives! The heart of this movement is the #ThisIs40 program, open to only 40 women at a time, on a 4-month journey to shift old patterns, blast through obstacles, make a declaration of their independence, and activate their purpose.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (where she has also served as adjunct faculty) Carin was one of the first 250 people in the world to earn a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology. She has spent years at the intersection where science meets real life, helping people leverage one to improve the other, building upon their strengths, breaking free of old obstacles, regaining courage and learning how to create lives they love.
Carin is a regular contributor to national media: She’s the Motivation Expert for YouBeauty.com, has appeared on NBC, CBS, PBS, and NPR, in Crain's Business, and is the Happiness Guru on Sirius XM’s Cosmo Radio. She also hosts her own show, “Happy Hour,” on the Lifestyle Talk Radio Network. Most recently, she became an international best-selling author for her contribution to Pebbles in the Pond: Wave Three.
An engaging and dynamic presenter, Carin earns rave reviews from the work she’s done with companies like Alcoa, AVON, EY, and Morgan Stanley, where she conducts strengths-based team building, workshops, and other programs geared toward energizing and empowering employees at every level. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, completed MBA coursework at Case Western University, and received a Certificate in Gestalt Therapy from the Gestalt Institute in Cleveland. Carin is a marathon runner, gourmet cook and painter and lives in Philadelphia with her husband Joshua, her stepson, and their mutt, Henry.
