After earning her PhD at The Ohio State University College Rosemarie Rossetti had a successful career in teaching, speaking and marketing.

In 1998 she had just moved to focus exclusively on speaking when a tree fell on her. She had a spinal cord injury which changed her life.

While still at the hospital, her colleagues and supporters helped her see that not only was her life not over, but that she could turn her expertise in speaking, and her personal experience of life in a wheelchair into both a career and a lifetime commitment to helping others, and making the world a better place through Universal Design, encouraging the need for disability insurance, and then into creating her own actual Universal Design Living Laboratory.  

Since then she has been a sought after keynote speaker and corporate trainer internationally on the issues of Universal Design.

Then she and her husband committed to building the first ever Universal Design Living Laboratory- a home that showcases all the elements of UD, in its beauty and functionality, and literally invites people into her home.

Inspiring millions, she has made a full time paying career in the areas many wish for, but few accomplish:  speaking and sponsorship.  Her many sponsors enable her to both speak at non-paying conferences, but have a place in virtually every inch of the UDLL.  

During our hour in-depth interview, we'll get to know Rosemarie Rossetti as a person who turns challenges into opportunities.  We'll learn fundamentals in our on-going series of the intersections with design and health.  For those seeking a career in speaking and brand ambassadorship- we will learn from a woman who has been completely successful at DOING it.  

No doubt, an incredible opportunity for designers, patients, manufacturers, speakers, healthcare providers and more...we'll pack in a lot into this special hour.
