Rosanne Ziering currently serves on the Boards of the Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Kehillat Israel Synagogue in Pacific Palisades and Friends of the Sheba Medical Center in Israel.
After attending UC Berkeley she worked as an environmental education for the Santa Monica Conservancy. This began her passion for the environment and her daily hiking ritual. She is an avid supporter of the NRDC and is collaborating with them and Yale University on a series of symposiums on the environment, to be presented at The Broad Stage next year.
She has worked in public relations and has a Masters in Professional Writing from USC. Her business ventures included importing and distributing Tahitian pearls throughout the United States, as well as designing a line of pearl jewelry.
In 2008 she became aware of the issues surrounding foster youth in the community and brought this awareness to her synagogue, by creating a foster task force and implementing a birthday program in the religious school as well as raising funds to supply 40 DCFS youth with laptops. She is passionate about the co-mentoring project that she started with SCFFAA and looks forward to growing this program.
Rosanne lives in Pacific Palisades with her son and two dogs.
