Meet Happiness Coach, Rochelle Gapere

#FeatureFriday is where we feature a top young professional from within our community. For the month of February, our focus will be highlighting key individuals that create an impact in South Florida. We look forward to introducing you to some local leaders.


Rochelle is an attorney by day and a happiness coach by heart.


Rochelle has always had a passion for learning and currently wears many hats as an Author, Speaker and Happiness Coach, who has been practicing law for the past 14 years. Although being an attorney is not her true passion, Rochelle is grateful for the opportunity to practice law. She launched her Happiness Coaching business with a mission to add more happiness to this world by creating tools and techniques to help individuals lead happier, more fulfilling lives.


In 2016, she went through an unexpected breakup from a 5-year relationship with someone she was planning on spending the rest of her life with. As she mastered the art of living life to the fullest, she had no idea at the time that the breakup would be the stimulus that catapulted her into finding her life’s purpose. As a Happiness Coach, Rochelle has the opportunity to bring people’s mind and heart together, helping them find genuine happiness. Through a series of exercises and supportive dialogue, clients learn how to build their inner happiness. Rochelle provides her clients with the skills to simplify and improve their quality of life, opening their minds to new possibilities in discovering personal joy.


You have one precious life and your goal each and every day should be to maximize your potential, and by extension, hopefully, you will encourage and inspire others to do the same.”


Publishing a book has always been a life goal of Rochelle. She always knew she would write a book one day, but was never quite sure what it would be about. After being told by a number of people who inquired about her well-being after the breakup that her perspective was “unique and extremely refreshing,” a lightbulb went off and Rochelle had an ‘aha moment!’


One Happy Thought.


Difficult seasons in life are inevitable. But if you change your perspective, and reflect on One Happy Thought, you realize that though things could be better, they could also be a lot worse. Her book, One Happy Thought at a Time: 30 Days to a Happier You, was created with the idea of tuning into mindfulness and gratitude. One of her proudest accomplishments since launching her brand was becoming an Amazon Bestselling Author on the first day of the book’s release.


Instead of allowing frustration to steal your energy and joy, she credits her outlook on life to being grateful for what you have, “Rather than looking at the glass as half full or half empty, be grateful and proud of the fact that you simply have a glass.”


Mindset can change everything and Rochelle makes sure that both her clients and herself, live a life filled with purpose and happiness each day.
