Rose is a mature aged, young at heart woman (a little on the eccentric side) and married with 3 grown up children. Three fur babies are a part of her at home Family; Archer (a Kelpie Cross), Bluey (a silvery grey tabby cat), and Artemis (a black mixed breed); and 2 lorikeets (both foundlings).
She has a ‘no nonsense no ‘fluff’ attitude however, a kind and caring heart and personality to match. Sounds like a bit of a paradox.
As an advocate for Social Justice and an avid campaigner against all forms of abuse, Rose is passionate about equality and justice for all.
Since migrating from Canada at the age of 12, Rose have had the opportunity to live in all states within Australia except one. Her tapestry of travel emulates the broad experience she has gained in her extensive career.
With more than 35 years’ experience in high-level admin roles, both in the public and private sector, Rose’s career portfolio spans federal government, sporting organisations and small business ownership incorporating:
Adelaide Magistrate’s Court
SA Power Networks
Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation
WSP and Parsons Brinckerhoff
UWS, John Holland
Skills for Growth: The Workforce Development
GWM Water Wimmera Mallee Pipeline Project
Rose has volunteered in several organisations including UN Women (International Women’s Day Co-Event Coordinator), Oasis Wimmera (Immigrant Support Group – Board member and Event Coordinator), and the Rotary Club of Horsham (Vic), and in 2018 became the Secretary of ‘Healing Through Love‘; whose vision is to shift awareness on Domestic Violence within the Community and support survivors; and Secretary of FADVAN (Family and Domestic Violence Advocacy Network).
In 2018, Rose as Secretary of Healing Through Love, was an integral part of the Committee which was responsible for the successful HTL Pamper Day in May. Feedback was overwhelming positive with the event organised within 6 short weeks and attracted over 30 sponsors and exhibitors, and more than 100 attendees. The short time frame was made possible through Rose’s ability to keep the Committee on track with actions, record keeping, and technological support systems.
Rose has also been a Workplace Delegate in the Commonwealth Public Service Union, held a variety of positions in Social and Sports Clubs from Committee member to President, been a Sports Trainer, and a Board member of a Tasmanian Football Club (Membership, Social, and Fundraising Coordinator), which actively contributes my vast professional and training skills with commitment and high integrity.
As a self-motivated, diplomatic and multi-skilled professional with experience in small business and human resource management, office, and financial administration, her interpersonal style combines her professional business skills with sensitivity and powerful social networks. She embraces challenges to deliver results and thrive working in engaging and collaborative teams where her experience and knowledge are capitalised.
With a Diploma of Business (Human Resource Management) and accompanied by a AFP National Clearance, EEO, WHS and First Aid training, Rose takes every opportunity to push the boundaries with her knowledge and service as can be seen with her many certificates.
