My name is Suzanne Roff, PhD, and I am the Founder of Expressive Age. “Who am I?” is a question that we all ask ourselves. While I am not fond of labels, here are a few of mine: author, coach, educator, leader, psychologist, friend.
Growing up on what was once a tropical “paradise,” I had travel and hospitality instincts from an early age. After receiving a Master’s degree in Travel and Tourism Administration, I worked in the industry for a few years before returning to the University to complete a PhD degree in Psychology. My focus was on life span development, career and recreation. There was so much to research and understand about how people work and play. My dissertation on “Surprising Transformations of Time: Love beginning at Midlife” won an award.
My professional services changed over the years from psychotherapy and career counseling to executive coaching. A few years ago, I was widowed and needed to “re-invent” myself to move forward. I launched Psychology21C to focus on 21st century psychology and served as the President of the Manhattan Psychological Association for two years.
Currently, I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor at New York University and serve on the Board a few lineage and historical societies. I am an active member of two program committees and enjoy inviting authors and other interesting people to present their work.
I bring these life experiences to Expressive Age to provide you with inspiration and resources.
