Prior to her joining RFK LA (Legacy in Action) as the Director of Development and Strategic Alliances, Rosa worked in the entertainment industry, first as a production accountant, then as an independent feature and documentary producer. When her daughter started pre-school, Rosa applied her business experience and skills to volunteering, with a focus on fundraising campaigns and volunteer management, which led to her career change as a development executive for RFK LA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit focused on mentoring high school students to become social justice activists. After 6 years with RFK LA, she formed her own independent consultancy.
Rosa remains on the advisory board of RFK LA. She is a past president of The Cabrini Literary Guild, current chair of her Parish’s Women’s Guild, and a board member and TAY (Transition Age Youth in foster care) committee chair of the Kiwanis Club of the Verdugos.
