I have been working in non-profits and the public sector since 1998. I have worked in the fields of public education, disability rights, domestic violence, rape crisis services, child welfare, mental health, youth development, and non-violent social change.
I love the way new challenges offer opportunities to ask questions and learn from those who are most affected by the problems that need to be addressed. I approach supervision, mentoring, coaching and collaboration with deep curiosity and respect. One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is being able to teach others how to navigate systems or challenges that used to baffle me.
Kind words about me
Rosalie is a great thought partner – and that extra team member you wish
you had. We knew what we wanted to accomplish, and she translated those ideas into webpages and social media strategy that allowed us to pivot from in-person youth programming to interactive online clubs within just a couple of weeks.
― Andrea Howard, Executive Director of West End House Boys and Girls Club
In a non-profit environment where mission-minded volunteers, professionally-trained staff, and government regulatory agencies work together, developing a shared vision can be complex. The goal of serving vulnerable clients may be the same, but each of these constituencies views things through a different lens. When Cunningham Children’s Home developed our long-term strategic plan, Rosalie was able to translate these disparate viewpoints into strong, clear messaging that everyone could understand and support. I have often commented that one of the best moves I made during my career was to hire Rosalie. She is a master communicator who can manage multiple projects and deliver the highest quality product on time, every time.

As Executive Director of a policy-focused human services agency, our work is centered on building shared understanding and enthusiasm for initiatives that will improve the lives of children, youth and families. Rosalie has been an essential partner in this work and had a particularly important impact on shaping and messaging our citywide web resource, FindItCambridge.org. As projects come and go, I know that if I send her a draft of a plan or proposal, she will get back to me quickly with extremely helpful edits that bring my ideas to life.
― Nancy Tauber, Executive Director of the Cambridge Family Policy Council
