Before calling Canada her home, Rosa lived in Venezuela and the United States. She trained as a Psychologist at Universidad Central de Venezuela and completed graduate studies in Mental Health Psychology at the University of Liverpool. A member of the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), Rosa is passionate about keeping up with the latest research and best practices. With 20+ years of direct contact with Pre-K to Higher Education students, she holds a strong track record in Career Guidance, Post-Secondary Counseling and promoting healthy transitions.
Before joining the International Schools Partnership in March of 2022, Rosa had designed and implemented bespoke Higher Education readiness programs that have provided meaningful support for schools, students, and families. She had personally visited over 600 universities and colleges across the world and developed global professional development for Higher Education Representatives and School Counselors. Rosa has presented at the Council of International Schools (CIS), the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO), the Tri Association, the National Association for College Admissions Counselors (NACAC) and the International Association for College Admissions Counselors (IACAC), holding leadership positions in the latter two organizations.
A life learner, Rosa recently discovered her green thumb and spends time in her home garden cultivating herbs, vegetables, and flowers with the satisfaction of cooking with home grown ingredients. She and her husband share a love for travel and people. Every Sunday afternoon, she connects electronically with family and friends to try out new recipes and to share a meal together.
