After graduating, Rosie continued her studies while participating in community service projects with her church. In 2013 after the birth of her daughter, Rosie accepted a position as a Transportation Consultant for the largest permit company in the United States. Through-out the COVID-19 pandemic Rosie has worked closely with Caltrans and every city, state and federal transportation agency to ensure the safe transport of essential COVID-19 supplies and oversize loads.
Rosie is an active member in her community and has volunteered for various community events and committees over the years. In 2015, she was appointed to the Parks and Recreation Commission by Covina City Council and served as Vice Chairman her first year and Chairman her second year. In this role, Rosie created events to bring unity in the community, worked with city officials to address resident’s concerns and assisted in the Banna Avenue park site neighborhood forums, which informed community members of preliminary design plans and served as means of communication for any suggestions made by the public to City Council.
In 2019, Rosie was appointed by Covina City Council to the Library Board of Trustees. Her priorities in this role are to expand the services and programs the City of Covina offers for children in the Covina Valley and Charter Oak Unified School District. She works to ensure the community is informed on the many resources the library offers and the neutral, trusted, public square that is available to the community through different outreach programs.
In 2020, Rosie was a part of the COVID-19 Recovery Planning Work Group for City Services formed by the City of Covina. The City of Covina formed the emergency operation team to assist with a phased approach of reopening according to National, State, and local Department of Public Health guidance. Rosie’s participative leadership and proactive decision making assisted in the safe reopening of public spaces in the community.

Rosie is the President of the Covina Lions Breakfast Club, which provides scholarships, eyeglasses and hearing tests for students experiencing hardship. Rosie is also a member of the Covina Woman’s Club, which is the oldest service club in Covina. She currently serves as the CWC Historian.
