Rosalie is an accredited facilitator with the Center for Courage & Renewal, a criminologist, and a clinical speech pathologist with more than 30 years’ experience. In 2013 Rosalie founded a charity, Chatter Matters Tasmania, to bring literacy and parent-child attachment programs to Tasmania’s Risdon Prison. She was awarded 2017 Tasmanian Australian of the Year for the work she began at the prison. She is grateful for the platform this recognition has afforded for the promotion of kind communication in approaching issues of social justice. And she is ever-grateful to all family, friends and colleagues. Nothing that is worth doing is ever done alone.
