When Rose moved to Mesa County, Colorado, she did not know a single person. Utilizing the entrepreneurial spirit she learned from her parents, Rose took a chance and opened her own law firm. Shortly after, she became active and engaged in the community and earned the trust of her clients.
Rose is what she calls an accidental politician. In 2008, she went down to the local party’s headquarters for a yard sign and began to get more involved politically. Years later, Rose was successful in her bid for Mesa County Commissioner and served Mesa County for 8 years.
