Meet Michelle

Featured Keynote Speaker

Michelle L. Rusk, Ph.D., formerly known as Michelle Linn-Gust, has been traveling the world and educating people about suicide grief since the suicide of her younger sister in 1993. The first of Michelle’s ten books, Do They Have Bad Days in Heaven? Surviving the Suicide Loss of a Sibling, chronicled the loss of her sister. Michelle is a past president of the American Association of Suicidology and her most recent book is Flowers by Day, Stars by Night: Finding Happiness after Loss and Change. Today she focuses on where her journey has taken her and living the life she always dreamed of through writing fiction (The Green Dress) and the creation of a lifestyle brand, Chelle Summer.
