Marie Rosema

Technology Coordinator
Marie is the newest member on the ASSIST staff. She is multi-talented, and we feel fortunate to be able to tap her talents. Marie has two bachelor's degrees and a Master's in Marketing Management. She recently spent four years in the South Pacific, which gave her time to explore Asia. Not only will Marie be a technical asset to ASSIST with her social media and design capabilities, she will also bring with her the knowledge and the sensitivities she has received by stepping inside other cultures (Japan, China, Thailand to name a few). A very warm welcome, Marie!
