Rosaliene originally trained as a nurse but has spent her career working with people with intellectual disabilities, mental health needs and brain injury.
In the last few years Rosaliene travelled twice to Albania with ECM. Seeing and hearing the stories of the rejection and stigmatisation faced by those living with disabilities led to her giving up her job and moving abroad with her husband and youngest daughter. She spent two years with SIM in Zimbabwe training churches and communities to include and care for those with disabilities.
Rosaliene is married to Geoff and they have three children Jessica, Ryan and Lisanne.
