Though born in the United States, Rosalie Klein is proud to be thought of as an Aruban. After living on the island for more than 30 years, she is firmly entrenched in Aruban life.

Rosalie moved to Aruba in 1980 to work as the island’s first female certified PADI open-water SCUBA instructor. Her writing career began in 2001 when she began submitting articles to local papers about tourism events. She worked as a journalist and photographer for English newspaper The News until 2009, and since 2010, she has been the principal reporter and photographer for The Morning News.

Rosalie has published articles about Aruba’s people, history, culture, and tourism services in dozens of publications, including Aruba Events, Aruba Experience, Destinations, House Complete, Chef’s Menu and Recipe, On The Air, Island Gourmet, and Aruba Nights. Her photos have also been exhibited at the Aruba Numismatic Museum. In 2008, the Minister of Culture of Aruba recognized her for chronicling Aruba’s cultural achievements and heritage.
