SWIPE MY OFFICIAL BIO + HEADSHOTS

Rosalia Rivera is a consent educator and child sexual abuse prevention specialist, sexual literacy advocate, TEDx speaker, Chair of SAGE (Survivor Advocates Globally Empowered) representing the BRAVE Movement, and the founder of CONSENTparenting™, the host of the AboutCONSENT™ podcast and creatrix of CONSENTwear™. She is also a CSA (child sexual abuse) survivor, turned thriver.

She helps busy parents go from fearful and anxious to confident and empowered, about teaching their kids about body safety, boundaries, and consent to prevent sexual abuse. 

As a CSA survivor and parent, from a family of survivors, she discovered how triggering it was to learn about abuse prevention when it was time to educate her own kids once she became a mother. Determined to break the intergenerational cycle of abuse, Rosalia dedicated herself to her healing so she could overcome the anxiety and triggers that kept coming up when learning about abuse prevention so she could teach her kids. 

Through the process, she learned that there were no programs speaking specifically to the survivor experience. This was preventing a large percentage of the parenting population from educating themselves and their kids, thereby increasing the perpetuation of the cycle. That is when she created and founded CONSENTparenting™ and launched her AboutCONSENT™ podcast, dedicated to survivors and those who support survivors to share interviews with experts in the field of mental wellness, trauma, and survivors/thrivers. She has helped thousands of parents through her various social media platform content, her well-reviewed workshops and programs, and her Empowered Family Membership.

Rosalia is certified in the Canadian Centre for Child Protection® COMMIT TO KIDS® Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Training Program and is a Certified Facilitator of the Stewards Of Children® Training by Darkness to Light, as well as OnWatch™.

Her Instagram account continues to rapidly grow over with, now, over 60k engaged followers, with her other platforms quickly growing. She has a dedicated listenership on her podcast with well-respected guests, including Alyssa Milano, looking to share their expertise with her audience.

As a guest on many top-rated podcasts, Rosalia’s episodes are always some of the most popular, being interviewed on podcasts like Unruffled by Janet Lansbury and the top Latinx mom podcast Super Mamas.

In 2021 and 2022 she spoke at TEDxOneonta on the topic of dismantling rape culture (2021) and teaching kids and adults consent education (2022), as well as at the well-recognized yearly industry conference, IGNITE by Darkness to Light on the topic of survivor/trauma-informed abuse prevention education.

In 2019, Rosalia was awarded a Hay House Diverse Wisdom Program scholarship to begin working on her upcoming book, a guide to abuse prevention for survivor parents. She is currently working on a prevention book for parents and a children’s book series about secrets, both to be released in 2023.

Rosalia has been featured on MSNBC, ABC7, CNN, CTV News, Univision 34, FOX34, as well Parents Magazine, LiveWell Mind and Thrive Global. Rosalia has also published articles for BoldLatina and Motherly

Although Rosalia was born in El Salvador and grew up in NY, she now resides in northern Canada with her life-partner and three young kids.
