About Roseann Vanella
Roseann’s experience and credentials alone set her apart from other professional mediators. But Roseann is truly passionate about her work because she has personally benefited from the advantages of mediation.

Mediation requires a delicate balance: The neutral third party must be firm yet compassionate, knowledgeable yet creative.
Roseann is all of the above. She deftly handles difficult divorce and family issues with one goal in mind: A resolution that benefits everyone.
She believes in the power of mediation because she’s been there. Roseann experienced a successfully mediated divorce that allowed her to move on with her life. She also has been through a lengthy family dispute involving elder care. She fully understands how much families benefit when they mediate – and suffer when they don’t.
