Rosie grew up in Central Oregon before moving west to attend the University of Oregon, where she majored in biology with minors in sociology and chemistry. Before joining the FARF team, her interest in nonprofits led her to work for the 4-H program in Central Oregon, then at United Way of Lane County, where she developed new programs and relationships with members and donors. In her role as Family Services Program Manager at FARF, Rosie assists caregivers and individuals affected by FA by organizing meaningful events, creating support and educational resources, and providing direct support along the FA journey. “I’m extremely thankful and excited for the opportunity to make a difference in this role that perfectly connects my love of science and helping others,” Rosie says.
Outside of work, you can find Rosie reading a historical fiction or mystery novel, biking next to the river, eating at her favorite local Thai restaurant, or spending time with friends and family.
