Rose came to K2D Strategies after graduating from American University in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Justice and Law and a minor in Public Health. During her time at American University, she found her passion for fundraising after spending almost two years in American University’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations with the Parent and Family Philanthropy team as a student assistant. She was also the philanthropy chair for her fraternity at AU, where she organized fundraisers for and volunteered with DC-based nonprofits, including DC Central Kitchen, We Are Family DC, and the CAIR Coalition.
She was then a fundraising intern for Americans United for Separation of Church and State during the summer of 2020, where she had to opportunity to continue to learn about all aspects of nonprofit development. Rose also has experience as an intern for Virginia Delegate Danica Roem’s 2019 re-election campaign and as a customer service representative for a small aviation business based in Manassas, Virginia.
Rose currently lives in Northern Virginia with her partner Ethan and their dog, Twinkie. When she isn’t fundraising for our amazing clients, she enjoys playing her flute in the community band she’s a part of, hiking the mountains of the Shenandoah, trying new recipes, or attempting to teach Twinkie manners (though regardless, you’ll likely still see Twinkie’s head pop up on a Zoom call as her favorite place to nap is in Rose’s lap)!
