Rosie Mercado is an expert life coach on Face the Truth, a new talk show produced by Dr. Phil that counsels people in conflict. Rosie is also a correspondent on the leading Spanish-language networks Telemundo and Univision, as well as on the Emmy-award winning Dr. Phil Show and The Doctors. Her most recent speaking engagements include the Call Her conference in Las Vegas, NV and delivering the keynote for the Obesity Help conference in Anaheim, CA.
Rosie’s journey towards losing 240 pounds and her consequent life transformation have established her as a leading voice for women’s empowerment. She has been featured in People, the Daily Mail and the New York Post among other prominent outlets and was recently named one of People en Espanol’s 25 Most Powerful Latinas. Rosie advocates for people who are marginalized and she works to transform societal norms so that all bodies are valued and accepted.
