Micheline Nader
Author, Speaker, Coach & Healthcare Entrepreneur

MICHELINE NADER, BSN, MPH, DESS is a best-selling author, healthcare entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and philanthropist dedicated to empowering people through conscious awareness and transformational leadership. She is the Founder and former CEO of Blue Dolphin Healthcare Group and is currently the President of Jesra Foundation, her family nonprofit dedicated to creating breakthroughs in health and education.

Micheline has extensive expertise in hospital administration, long-term care, and healthcare management. After a successful career in hospital administration, Micheline was interested in supporting the needs of seniors. Realizing they deserved a place to call home where they would receive optimal care, be supported by dedicated staff, and have an enriching and purposeful life, she founded the Blue Dolphin Healthcare Group, which grew to become a large chain of nursing homes and eventually was successfully acquired.
Micheline is a trustee of Fairleigh Dickinson University, chairs the Silberman College of Business Advisory Board, and serves on the board of Takreem America.

Micheline holds a BS in Nursing, a master’s in public health from the American University of Beirut, and a Doctoral degree in Healthcare Management from Paris-Dauphine University.


In her first best-selling book, The Dolphin’s Dance: Discover Your True Self through a Powerful 5-Step Journey into Conscious Awareness, Micheline recounts her journey from loss to success — which she credits to the process of conscious awareness. She provides guidance to help other achieve long-lasting emotional wellness beyond any trauma. Through her transformative process, she helps individuals uncover limiting patterns of behavior and embrace their true selves.

Building from the groundbreaking ideas in The Dolphin’s Dance, Micheline’s second book, LEAP Beyond Success, introduces a transformational system: LEAP—Lean, Execute, Align, and Program. Designed for leaders who want to accelerate their growth and impact, the book describes what lies beyond success, offering a wealth of knowledge for leaders ready to leverage their passions and master the arts of self-development and social impact.

In LEAP Beyond Success, this reflective, thought-provoking work gives the reader the tools to overcome the past, create a new future, and go beyond yourself to grow by leaps and bounds.


What others are saying:

“It is an excellent read, and a great playbook for next-gen leaders that can’t use pattern recognition anymore to lead as the world is changing so fast. The book is very powerful, actionable, and practical. I must admit that it has already made a difference in how I think. I felt that the book was written for me. Don’t Lead. Just Leap. It is not a letter change; it is a whole mindset change!
—Simon Khalaf, CEO, Marqeta

“I am particularly struck at how well Micheline Nader details the leadership challenges that arise from a misalignment of mindset. Leap Beyond Success has practical and powerful exercises that provide real learning and thoughtful reflection. This book is a must for leaders in a post-Covid world to digest and implement Micheline’s tactics and strategies for LEAPing ahead.”
—Stephen F. Bozer, Senior Vice President, Human Health, Flavine North America, Inc.

“LEAP Beyond Success is a wonderful deep dive into so many relevant topics and reminders of how to effectively cast vision and lead, how to follow your purpose, and how to transform others as you do so. One quote that I will carry with me: ‘Purposeful leaders create purposeful organizations and contribute their innate passion to others.’
—Michael Avaltroni ( Interim President Fairleigh Dickinson University)
