Roseann Rossetti is the Senior Director of Business Development for American Language Technologies, Inc., a full service translation company based in Plano, TX. It was her previous position as the General Manager for a chain of 17 hair salons in Collin County that launched her volunteer work in the field of HIV/AIDS.
In 2001 Roseann began her volunteer work with the Collin County location for Health Services of North Texas which provides comprehensive care to people infected with HIV/AIDS. Assigned to the “Buddy Program” she was paired with HIV/AIDS clients to provide emotional and practical support through regular calls, visits, and help with the tasks of daily living. This led her to a position on their Board of Directors and Co-chairperson for their annual World AIDS Day event.
Because of the stigma still associated with HIV/AIDS, in 2007 Roseann co-founded the non-profit organization C.U.R.E. (Community Unity Respect Education, Inc.) and currently is President of the organization. She has planned and executed various events that include HIV testing, presentations to local youth groups on HIV/AIDS education and prevention, displays of the AIDS Memorial Quilt at corporations, schools and other local venues as well as the C.U.R.E. signature World AIDS Day program held every year on December 1st. Most recently she was recognized with the Woman of Unsung Courage Award presented by A Sisters Gift. Roseann is an advocate for all people living with HIV/AIDS and the courageous family and friends who support them.
