Rosalie Gaziano
2002 National Mother of the Year.

Rosalie Gaziano Bio:

Phi Beta Kappa graduate of West Virginia University, Rosalie is the mother of five successful sons—including one Rhode’s Scholar—and grandmother to nine. She is the author of Mothers Speak...for Love of Family, an inspirational collection of stories about family and motherhood; It’s Your Turn, Chickadees, a travel insight book; and Seasons & Celebrations, a Mediterranean cookbook, written with the input of her family, which includes experts in cardiology and fitness at Harvard.

Rosalie was selected as 2002 National Mother of the Year by American Mothers, Inc. During her reign, she found the stories she heard from mothers across the country as courageous and powerful. American Mothers, Inc. agreed with her and asked her to write her latest book. She is currently writing another cookbook concentrating on recipes that are healthy for the heart.

As she has worked with National Symphony activities and created a local festival, she is often asked to speak on Event Planning as well as inspirational topics to young families, who wish to grow together and stay together.

Being an author, and especially because of her duties as 2002 National Mother of the Year, Rosalie has achieved a high level of media experience in print, radio, and television. She has appeared nationally on CNN and MSNBC as well as on many regional broadcasts.
