Rose lives in Guelph, Ontario, Canada with her husband David. They have 4 grown children. As a personal trainer specializing in older adults, she has worked with many arthritic individuals and, as a nutritionist, helped them choose foods to feel better. In the corporate world she consulted with organizations to implement office ergonomics, and taught staff to stretch at work.
After watching her mother spend more time sewing than moving, Rose has made it her mission to work at staying pain free while continuing to sew for as long as possible. She has combined her studies in home economics with her certifications in ergonomics, fitness, wellness and nutrition to teach others how to sew smart.
Her workshops and lectures are available to guilds and at quilt conferences around the world. She is a member of the Association of Canadian Ergonomists, Canfitpro Fitness Professionals, Canadian Quilters Association, American Quilters Society and various local guilds.
