Rose has been engaged in local issues over the past two decades and is experienced in listening to and working with residents, organisations, businesses and Moonee Valley Council to improve decision-making for our community.
Rose lives in Travancore with her partner, two teenage children, dog, Shadow, and his feline nemesis, Ivy.
Rose is currently working as a teacher and researcher in education and is soon to submit a PhD thesis on multilingual learning. Rose has previously worked in law, politics, and journalism.
She runs the Flemington Theatre Company, and the Moonee Valley Blog, keeping locals informed about issues. She also runs—and, like others, is missing weekly Parkruns by the river.
