"Mental illness affects us all whether we live with it ourselves, care for a loved one or know someone who is struggling. Yes, it's more common than we think. Breaking Into My Life gives us insight and hope that we can break the chains of stigma associated with mental illness by broadening the conversation. People who are impacted by mental illness deserve a chance to live their best life and Michelle articulates this beautifully in her book."

- Geralyn Giorgio, Head of the Mental Health Diplomats Employee Resource Group at Johnson & Johnson and Certified Professional Coach

“What people see on the outside is often not the full story of what is happening on the inside. So many people miss the opportunity to find out what's happening behind the smile. Not Michelle. Everyone has a story she truly wants to hear, and she sees hope in everyone she meets. That superpower gift comes from someone who has seen some things. Breaking Into My Life is that story. A story where Michelle first found hope in herself.”

- Marlene Lepkoski, Global Head, Regulatory Engagement and Development at Johnson & Johnson

“As a retired nurse and sister-in-law to Michelle's late mother, I have a deep understanding of mental illness and the impact it can have on families. I truly applaud Michelle for her relentless drive for self-improvement and her deep desire to help others live a life with self-value. Her courage in writing Breaking Into My Life will make a difference for so many people.”

- Muriel Brown, RN, BSN - Retired nurse from RWJUMC

“Michelle's book has further driven my passion, as a regulatory affairs leader in the area of neuroscience, to bring products to market that help treat those struggling with mental illness and their families. Breaking Into My Life will inspire, and provide hope and positivity to, those struggling with a loved one with mental illness. And it will continue to foster the dialogue needed so that people can heal.”

- Christine Grundy, PharmD, North American Regulatory Affairs Leader, Neuroscience, Johnson & Johnson
