Roslyn Franken was born to a mother who survived the
concentration camps of Nazi Germany and a father who survived the Japanese slave labour
camps as a Prisoner of War.
Diagnosed with cancer at age 29, Roslyn quickly learned that she inherited her parents'
“survivor” gene as she herself fought back to become a long-term survivor.
Then age 39, at her heaviest weight ever and concerned for her health, Roslyn decided
to fight back once again… only this time it was to overcome her battles with food,
weight and lifestyle obstacles, once and for all!
Roslyn can truly say that she's "been there, done that, wrote the book".
She is the author of The A
List: 9 Guiding Principles for Healthy Eating and Positive Living and
founder of The A List Healthy Living
and Weight Loss
Roslyn owns and operates the Roslyn Franken Group, and is committed to helping people
lighten up their lives one bite at a time by reaching and maintaining a healthy weight,
balanced lifestyle, and positive life outlook. She provides practical guidance, personal
insight and positive inspiration through her motivational speaking, training and weight
loss coaching programs using the principles she developed and now shares in her book, The
A List. By putting these principles into practice herself, she maintains her current,
healthy weight and remains cancer-free.
Roslyn has a Masters in Human Systems Intervention from
Concordia University in Montreal and is a Certified Coach through the Professional School
of Psychology in California.
As a subject matter expert, Roslyn is often called upon as
a guest on television and radio as
well as contributing to articles and columns
to newspapers and magazines.
Roslyn regularly gives back to the community through
donations of her book, services and as host of the internet radio show How to
Thrive after 35.
Roslyn’s personal interests include portraiture, the
healing arts, cooking and song writing and she is happily married to Elliott Smith, a
professional comedy magician.
