Wedding officiant and Relationship Coach
Maria Romano is the founder of True Love Knots, LLC based in fabulously exciting Las Vegas! She started a small rental car company with her husband Frank. Maria’s company grew to over $18M in annual sales while Frank expanded into a gaming company.
Life changed forever when her father and brother, Frank’s business partners, had their programmer develop a rigged video poker program and then murdered the programmer. The gaming control board closed Frank’s company, even though he was innocent, and the scandal caused Frank to experience a massive heart attack. A heart transplant gave Frank and Maria 15 more years of life and love together until Frank’s passing in 2012.
Maria started picking up the pieces of her life and reinvented herself. She saw how the world caters to the young while the message of ageism causes so many not to realize their best days are ahead. Maria started to date again and found that there were many people just like her that had no clue where to start and what to do. Maria then created a program Going from Just One to Plus One. Her drive to help people find love also inspired her to write this book.
When she’s not busy connecting with her audiences, Maria is a licensed minister and has been for ten years. She has performed over 3000 wedding ceremonies. When she is not performing ceremonies or coaching Maria loves being home, spending time with her pet, cooking, and making memories with her family and friends. She also enjoying wine tasting, exercising, reading, and volunteering as a pastoral care minister, and mediating in small claims for local residents. Maria’s greatest joy is her children and grandchildren.
