Hi, I’m Rosie.


The ministry of my heart is mass human flourishing.

I've worked at the intersection of Wall Street finance, public policy, and Burning Man (true story!). I'm passionate about flourishing as the purpose of human activity.

Prior to pursuing this life's work, I served as a board member of the Bay Area Council and the New America Alliance, a national organization advocating for diverse investment fund managers. 

I've meditated daily for 8 years, I create art every day, and am a practitioner of The Miracle Morning® and the Whole30® food reset.
























Money exists to create human flourishing. Every human would benefit from having a kind relationship with money.












I started What Comes Now, a show about books and leadership, covering all things that brings people together or pull us apart.

Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and all major podcast platforms. 
















I wrote a framework about stakeholder engagement. People around the world have taken interest in it and it's been a blessing to share it in many countries. 

The von Lila Framework is the powerful catalyst to foster engagement and participation toward liberty and equity for all. 

The Framework was written through research spanning the globe, and my 22 years of generating participatory culture, working with Burning Man, and studying what goes into making highly engaged creative cultures.


“Simple. Elegant. Powerful. The von Lila Framework starts with the right questions.”
