Rosy began in the Human Services field during her freshman year in college, working in direct-care support for Holy Angles, a residential home for individuals that are medically fragile. After commuting from Pfieffer University to Holy Angels on the weekends throughout her education, she earned a full time position. During her time in Gaston County, Rosy worked as an educational aide, leading a classroom of individuals living with severe and profound disabilities specific to autism. She also provided residential support to adults with substance abuse and mental health issues for several years.
In 2006, Rosy joined Therapeutic Services Group, in Mecklenburg County, providing home and community support for an individual with autism. She supported that family until 2008, when she accepted a position as an educational instructor for TGS’s Day Support program. As a part of her many duties, Rosy developed and implemented client-specific programs to enhance service delivery and maximize client development. She was responsible for evaluating needs and progress, training staff and communicating with the service team, as needed. Rosy’s primary focus is in the development of socialization and communication programs for individuals living with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other communication handicaps.
