“Dr. Braun’s current focus is on promoting brain health through diet and exercise, as well as dispelling myths associated with cognitive wellness, both of which are of particular importance in this age of preventative health.”

William P. Bake, D.O
Neurologist
Ascension Healthcare System

“As a community neurologist, I feel extremely fortunate (and somewhat spoiled) to work with such a caring, skilled, and accomplished neuropsychologist as Dr. Michelle Braun.  A trait that immediately sticks out with Dr. Braun is her uncanny ability to use the mass amounts of data she obtains on a neuropsychological evaluation, and not only relay it in a manner that is easily understandable, but to use it as an effective teaching tool for patients and family alike. Dr. Braun’s current focus is on promoting brain health through diet and exercise, as well as dispelling myths associated with cognitive wellness, both of which are of particular importance in this age of preventative health.”

“Passionate…her enthusiasm is contagious.”

Dr. Natasha Bergeron

She is passionate about her work, and her enthusiasm is contagious. She has a great talent for staying informed and seeking the most up-to-date knowledge in her field in order to provide the best care to her patients. She also has a great ability to motivate others and transmit her knowledge in a manner that is easy to understand.

“Dr. Braun’s tools stand out from others that propose to boost memory and brain health because they are based on current scientific evidence.”

Jessica Chapin, PhD, ABPP-CN
Board Certified Clinical Neuropsychologist
Aurora Healthcare

“Dr. Michelle Braun has firmly established herself as a leader in the field of memory, dementia, and healthy brain aging. I am thrilled that she is now extending her knowledge and talents to bring this information out of the “individual office visit” to make it available to everyone. Over the years she has helped innumerable patients and families who have concerns about memory and other cognitive skills. She is in-demand as a speaker and advocate for improving brain health. Dr. Braun’s tools stand out from others that propose to boost memory and brain health because they are based on current scientific evidence. She takes cutting edge concepts in neuroscience such as neuroplasticity and neurogenesis and makes them available to everyone in practical and fun ways. The importance of what Dr. Braun is doing here cannot be overstated; providing powerful steps to strengthen our most important possession, our brain.”

“A leading expert in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias”

Robert E. Cohen, PsyD, ABPP
Clinical Rehabilitation Neuropsychology
Board Certified in Rehabilitation Psychology
Neurocognitive Consultants of Orlando, LLC

“It is my great pleasure to endorse one of my closest friends and colleagues, Dr. Michelle Braun. I have had the privilege of knowing Dr. Braun for over 12 years. Her dedication to the advancement of the field of behavioral medicine and intense desire for innovation is easily observed by those who have interacted with her personally and professionally. Never satisfied with “good enough,” Dr. Braun has worked tirelessly to improve her trade and reach the top of her profession in a short time. However, Dr. Braun is not only a skilled neuropsychologist but is the consummate renaissance clinician. A skilled writer who has published numerous peer reviewed articles, a dynamic public speaker with consistent five star reviews, an effective educator, inventor, innovator, motivator, (and dancer), Dr. Braun is exceedingly talented in which ever venue she pursues. She has been recognized by colleagues and community alike, being recognized as a “Top 40 under 40” award winner by the Milwaukee Business Journal. It is difficult to keep track of the well-deserved awards and honors Dr. Braun has received by multiple healthcare, research, and advocacy organizations.

Unlike many neuropsychologists who may focus only on clinical work, Dr. Braun has pursued a deeper and broader understanding about political and consumer trends in healthcare and more effective methods to reach people and educate on integrative and preventative healthcare. For example, she invented wearable jewelry-based tools designed to help remind and reward targeted healthy and adaptive behavior. She has focused intently on the role of exercise and behavioral changes to keep the brain healthy. Her televised program on Milwaukee Public Television examining ways to “Boost Your Brain” was quite impressive and focused on new integrated and empirically based changes to help people live longer and healthier lives by minimizing cognitive decline. She is a leading expert in the field of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias and has served on numerous committees tasked with improving dementia care and access. As such, I have called on her for wise consultation on numerous difficult clinical cases.

Dr. Braun is a multifaceted healthcare provider who, in my own experience, inspires others toward excellence. She has taken on leadership roles on the American Academy of Clinical Neuropsychology Board of Directors, and serves as a mentor and examiner for aspiring board-certified neuropsychologists. She has led the charge as an advocate for proposing fair representation and reimbursement for neuropsychological services across the country. She trained at Yale and Harvard and has worked in leadership positions at the Boston VA Healthcare System aimed at our aging veteran population. Not only is she one of the best neuropsychologists and consultants with whom I have ever worked, but she is also one of the most intelligent, genuine, and conscientious individuals you will ever hope to meet. To top it off, Dr. Braun is infinitely approachable, relatable, and humble in her demeanor and communication style. I joke with her that she is, in my opinion, the “Hermione Grainger” of neuropsychology with all the caring, intelligence, loyalty, advocacy, wit, and empathy (sans the bossiness).”

She has been extremely supportive to our families who have been referred to her for any memory concerns. Dr. Braun is very caring, compassionate and supportive to her patients. She is a wonderful listener, and communicates with others with kindness and understanding. Dr. Braun has presented many times in our community on topics related to dementia, self-care, and brain health.

“A wonderful partner.”

Director, Mental Health Inpatient Services
VA Boston Healthcare System
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry
Harvard Medical School

“Dr. Michelle Braun was the Assistant Director of the Inpatient Mental Health service at VA Boston Healthcare System prior to her move back to Wisconsin. Her departure was a big loss to our service as I valued her excellent clinical and leadership skills. As a board-certified Neuropsychologist, she performed neuropsychological and capacity assessments for our veterans and provided carefully crafted recommendations which proved very helpful in our treatment and discharge planning. She was an active participant in our academic mission, and was an outstanding supervisor and mentor for our psychology interns and fellows. With her passion to promote the best clinical care, she was a wonderful partner in reorganizing a residential program to become the first dual diagnosis program at VA Boston.“

“Constantly recruited to consult with and speak for major organizations in the field”

Amy Friday, Ph.D.
Licensed Clinical Psychologist / Geropsychologist
OPAL Institute
Oregon Passionate Aging and Living
Portland, OR

“What do you think of when you imagine brilliant and gifted people? Stringed instruments? Harvard or Yale? Dr. Michelle Braun is an acclaimed cellist and Ivy League graduate. She has devoted herself to the passion of helping people prevent brain disease and age well. Your next thought (often true) is that she is likely a dry, bump-on-a-log scientist with no people skills. Sorry to disappoint, but her patients have flocked to her for years because of the exact opposite – her warmth, caring, and humor shine through the layers of intelligence. I’ve known Dr. Braun for over a decade, and my biggest complaint is that we don’t live closer so that we could collaborate more often. Her charisma and enthusiasm for her work is obvious to her patients and to the larger healthcare community, which is just one of the reasons she is constantly recruited to consult with and speak for major organizations in the field. If you have the pleasure of seeing her speak, be prepared for interactive exercises and examples that motivate you to make changes to sharpen your mind and return the sheen to your golden years.”

“Her leadership and integrity are second to none.”

Thomas A. Hammeke, PhD, ABPP-Cn
Professor Emeritus, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Medicine
Medical College of Wisconsin

“I first met Dr. Braun when she was student receiving training in clinical neuropsychology at the Medical College of Wisconsin. I was impressed with her then. I have followed her career since she left the Medical College and remain impressed to this day. She was the kind of student that every educator wants to call their own, so that they could somehow take a measure of credit for her success. She is bright and talented, conscientious and thorough, and always highly organized and professional. She is quick to accept responsibility to make a situation better than how she found it. She brings a great deal of energy and creativity to whatever challenges confront her.  Her leadership and integrity are second to none. I know that you will also be similarly impressed with her.”

Presentations receive the highest possible reviews

Tom Hlavacek, Executive Director, Alzheimer’s Association, Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter.

“Dr. Michelle Braun is one of the Alzheimer’s Association’s most important healthcare partners – for a variety of reasons. First as a Neuropsychologist, she is a stellar practitioner.  She serves on our Medical and Scientific Advisory Committee, and we refer families to her clinic whenever possible.  Those families receive a thorough evaluation from a compassionate practitioner, and Dr. Braun always connects her patients and their caregivers to available resources for the Alzheimer’s journey.

Dr. Braun is also an engaging and sought-after speaker. She has presented at a number of Association conferences and seminars, and always receives the highest possible reviews. She is an expert not only on Alzheimer’s disease, but also on some of the rare and mixed forms of dementia, and we rely on her often for those talks.

Attendees often remark on Dr. Braun’s excellent presentation skills and her ability to convey complex scientific and medical information in easy to understand terms. In summary – she is an extremely important partner with us at the Alzheimer’s Association in advancing our mission and work.”

“I would fully entrust my loved ones to her care.”

Michele J. Karel, PhD, ABPP
Board Certified in Geropsychology

“I first met Dr. Michelle Braun in 2004 when she interviewed for a Clinical Geropsychology Fellowship at VA Boston Healthcare System. From that time on, as a Fellow in our program and then a respected colleague and collaborator, she has impressed me with her infectious enthusiasm about working with older adults and families; expertise and excellent clinical skills as a neuropsychologist and geropsychologist; outstanding communication and teaching abilities; and, importantly, her compassion. She has such positive energy and dedication to improving quality of life for older adults. I would fully entrust my loved ones to her care. I’d recommend that anyone interested to learn about the aging brain and maintaining positive brain health in later life “tune-in” to what Dr. Braun has to say!”

“Her input was invaluable to me…”

Nadine J. Kaslow, PhD, ABPP
Professor and Vice Chair, Emory School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Former President, American Psychological Association
Former President, American Board of Professional Psychology

“I first met Michelle Braun, PhD, ABPP-CN through her leadership as the Practice Representative to the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Committee on Early Career Psychologists. I was so impressed by her history of leadership, high level of professionalism, dedication to advancing the practice of psychology, and delightful interpersonal style that I invited her to serve on my Presidential Cabinet during my tenure as APA President (2014). As a member of my cabinet, Michelle was always someone that I could count on for providing me thoughtful, relevant, and timely feedback. Her input was invaluable to me during that year. I was delighted that our paths crossed again in 2016 when she was selected to attend the APA’s Leadership Institute for Women in Psychology. As a fellow in this prestigious leadership development program, Michelle distinguished herself as a leader who is committed to giving back to the community in countless ways, including through her media appearances, scholarship, community and professional service, and clinical practice efforts. As the past president of the American Board of Professional Psychology myself, I know that board certification in clinical neuropsychology is no easy feat and attests to her competence and expertise in this specialty area. Warm, friendly, caring, and compassionate, I have no doubt that she is a practitioner par excellence.”

Her practice is sought after, as she is able to thoughtfully assess her patients and provide them with innovative and practical ways in which they can address their cognitive concerns.

“What I find remarkable about Dr. Michelle Braun, aside from her vast knowledge and experience in the field of neuropsychology, is her ability to break down complex information and communicate it in a way that is meaningful and accessible. Even in her early years at Yale University, where we met in training, she was always excited to share her knowledge – in casual conversation with other professionals, interactions with her patients and in seminar presentations. Early on, she emerged as thought-leader in the field, committed in her quest to learning about, and advocating for, activities that would enhance the quality of life of her patients.

Throughout her career, Dr. Braun has continued to speak to the importance of healthy lifestyle choices, including exercise, good sleep, and involvement in cognitively engaging activities. As a clinical neuropsychologist specializing in Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, her professional presentations about brain health are infused with enthusiasm, compassion and a deeply contagious positive outlook. These qualities, combined with what she brings to the table in terms of knowledge and expertise, will undoubtedly continue to inspire and motivate others to make educated choices and take positive steps to enhance the quality of their lives.”
