Rosa joined the Lifecycle team in 2022. In 2009, Rosa began working in nursing in order to help address the root causes of health inequity. Their first passion in nursing was bedside HIV/AIDS & Hospice care in Seattle, Washington. They also worked on a Burn and Pediatric trauma unit learning the art and science of wound care. Rosa continued to use these skills to support people experiencing intense pain and anxiety.
Rosa moved to Tucson, Arizona where they worked in humanitarian aid on the US-Mexico border and later at a refugee camp in Ethiopia. After witnessing the power of midwifery care in the refugee camp, Rosa realized she wanted to become a midwife to reduce racial disparities in maternal and infant mortality. They became a Labor and Delivery nurse during the pandemic and recently returned to Philadelphia after 15 years away.
Rosa is currently a nurse-midwife student at Frontier Nursing University. She has a Diploma in Tropical Nursing from the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, a BSN from the University of Washington, and a BA from Oberlin College. She is committed to reproductive justice and queer and gender-affirming care. When not working, she loves swimming, hiking, and spending time with friends and family.
