Dr. Rosie knew she wanted to be a pediatrician since the tender age of ten. She is grateful to have so many role models through school, family and the community to shape and mold her through this journey. Along the way, she met her husband, David, in high school [Eisenhower H.S.--Go Big IKE!] but did not reunite until after college. He has been her rock through the rest of her path to becoming a doctor and beyond. Together they enjoy spending time with their kids, Thomas, Liam and Ellia. In her free time, she loves to craft, listen to show tunes, try new recipes, attempt DIY home projects and organize themed parties.
