Dating Coach Victorya Michaels Rogers is the author of The Automatic 2nd Date and Finding a Man Worth Keeping. During her single years Victorya went from no dates to being pursued by an Academy Award winning actor, Grammy winning rock star, gospel singer, DJ, pro-athlete, firefighter, naval aviator, and more, Rogers not only discovered the secrets to finding a man but also the secrets to finding and keeping the man of your dreams. This former Hollywood agent went on over 100 first dates with 98% of them asking her out for a second date. She has dating down to a science and enjoys teaching that science to you. When recently asked exactly what is it that she does, Victorya quickly replied “I am in the business of teaching people to create healthy dating relationships that lead to healthy marriage relationships, in a world in desperate need of them.” Victorya has been married to her husband Will for 10 years. They live in a suburb of Dallas with their two young children, Matthew and Katie. She has appeared on many radio and television programs.
While earning her bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism from California State University at Long Beach , Victorya entered the entertainment world at 18 through the live award show circuit with her first gig at the American Music Awards. Two years after college she was promoted to talent agent at just 23 and for more than a decade was a prominent Hollywood agent booking millions of dollars in business each year. She represented award winning producers, directors, writers, technical crew and actors for film and television. Victorya also taught three years at the esteemed Entertainment Studies extension program at UCLA on how to break into the entertainment business. In addition to a dating coach, Victorya is also a media career coach, and hosts the series How to Make it in Hollywood. For more information about her career coaching and audio programs visit her media website at www.makeitinmedia.com.
Victorya loved guiding the careers of her Hollywood clients but she wanted to make more of an impact on their lives than merely finding their next short term TV or movie gig. So she achieved her Masters degree at Fuller Theological Seminary at night while continuing her agent career by day. Two years after graduating she married Will Rogers, giving her a great excuse to walk away from the security of her agent career and transition to her dream career of author, speaker and coach. Since that day she had spoken across the country, written four relationship and inspirational books, released her audio series, and continues to actively coach people on major areas of their life including dating, relationships, media and career guidance.
Victorya is the author of 4 books including The Automatic 2nd Date, Finding a Man Worth Keeping, and co-author of the inspirational books The Day I Met God and How to Talk About Jesus Without Freaking Out , and has contributed to several others.
Helping her audience pursue their relationship, life and career goals, Victorya inspires her audiences to rekindle forgotten dreams as she shows them how to catch them. With infectious enthusiasm, she speaks throughout America at conferences, universities, singles groups, retreats, churches, youth groups, and women's luncheons. Her daily passion is to inspire single women to hold out for the very best, refusing to settle, because better dating choices creates better marriages!
