Rosie grew up in many places, but her main US homes are located near Fort Worth, Texas and Seattle, Washington. She studied Spanish and Education at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, Texas. Rosie’s first experience with international ministry was a short term trip to Baja California in 2013. This prompted her desire to continue her Spanish studies and pursue ministry opportunities in Latin America. After graduating university in 2019, Rosie served for two years with UWM and GoCorps in San Jose, Costa Rica, working with a bilingual church in youth and kids ministry. As her two year commitment ended in early 2022, she felt God calling her back to the first Latino country she had fallen in love with- Mexico- as God was opening doors for her to join the Avance staff in Mexico City.
Now Rosie serves Avance Mexico as Project Coordinator. Her main roles are working with special projects as they arise- expanding Avance to international locations, visiting universities in the US to aid mobilization, and visiting partner ministries in other Latino countries. She also provides Spiritual Formation support to participants and staff by organizing prayer retreats, leading prayer and accountability groups, and mentoring participants in one on one environments. Rosie is thankful for the opportunity to pour into young people desiring to grow in their abilities to serve God in new contexts.Support Rosie
