Rosa earned a Master of Public Administration degree from the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance at the University of Washington and a BA in Economics from Barnard College. Her expertise includes community outreach, participatory program development, monitoring and evaluation, and qualitative and quantitative research.
Prior to joining Triangle Associates, Rosa worked with the City of Seattle’s Office of Planning & Community Development, coordinating public involvement in communities at high risk of displacement. In this role, Rosa worked to inform Seattle’s Equitable Development Monitoring Program. She also spent one year designing monitoring and evaluation strategies for North Seattle College’s Early Childhood Education Department. There, she facilitated a Student Advisory Board to center student knowledge in the development of new mentorship and advising programs. Before moving to Seattle in 2017, Rosa spent four years helping to launch and manage a New York City-based nonprofit organization, Teens for Food Justice, that engages youth from Title 1 schools in high-tech hydroponic farming apprenticeships, nutrition education, and food justice advocacy.
After growing up on the east coast, Rosa is enjoying learning about the landscape and history of the Pacific Northwest. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, rowing, baking, and testing out her green thumb in her new vegetable garden.
