"I’ve witnessed Rosemary O’Connor speaking to large audiences in a variety of formats: alone on stage, interview style in front of a camera, and as a panel participant. No matter the format, Rosemary O’Connor speaks beautifully, easily, and honestly about the challenges of being a sober mom. She is inspirational and authentic and provides hope for recovery and for overcoming the shame and stigma that moms especially can suffer as a result of addiction."

Nell Hurley

"I’ve had the great pleasure of witnessing Rosemary do what she does best many times over the past few years. No matter if she is speaking with one or hundreds, she has a true gift of connecting with her audience, being heartfelt and authentic, and provides hope and strength to others by breaking down the walls of shame and guilt with her grace and humility. Her message is on-point for women of all ages and especially moms who are still struggling with substances or are thriving in recovery."

Lisa Stangl
