“Go big or go home.” Coffee addict. Long conversations with great company. “So, I’ve recently learned…” Connecting the dots. Adventures big and small. Celebrating the little victories. Looking forward to the future.
I was basically raised in a cornfield in the middle-of-nowhere Illinois and I have the FFA jacket to prove it. After a year as a state officer, I realized that I loved working with people and helping them move forward. So, I ended up getting my Bachelor’s in Public Relations with a minor in Journalism because I can’t help but ask questions all the time. In the process, I ended up in New York City for a summer working for a global PR firm.
But I was itching for something beyond the scope of the typical PR work. Now, I’m pursuing my MBA and looking toward the future to test my limits.
Oh the places I will go…
Research is more than data, it’s a story waiting to be told. By understanding the context –the who behind the what– we can understand why we got here. Then we can move on to where we are going.
Relationship & Community Building
Committing to understand people means creating a launching pad for the future. When the right people get together, a community can be built and the status quo can be challenged.

During the 2018 Journalism Mass Communication Department Awards Banquet, my awesome team received recognition across several categories. I was given a certificate of recognition for being the Founding Director of Racer Relations.
Rochele Rosa spent her high school years researching and problem solving various agricultural issues for competitive public speaking events. With two national silver medal placements in high school, she took that knowledge base further to place 7th nationally her sophomore year in college. As a former Illinois FFA State Officer, she holds both her State FFA Degree and American FFA Degree. Once she made the jump from agriculture to public relations, she found herself in New York City for a summer, elbow deep in industry analyses, media audits and consumer reports. Now, she’s pursuing her MBA and looking forward to the future.
