Rosa was born in Fortuna, CA and moved to Windsor in 1979. Her parents bought a home here in Windsor on Windsor Road. Rosa’s maternal grandparents moved into Windsor in the early 70’s, her family still owns this house in a neighborhood off Hembree Lane.
Rosa is a mother of three teenage kids. The oldest just graduated from Windsor High school and will continue to live with Rosa while working and going to the Junior College.
Rosa began working in the Wine industry in 1989, while she was a senior at Healdsburg High School. In December of 2017 she made the choice to step away from her job as Business Manager for Jackson Family Wines to focus on her family and discover what she could create in the new year.
When Rosa decided to start a family, she wanted to have the option of being a stay at home mother so she started a small business, Reliable Records, in 2000. She is an independent consultant working in the Wine industry. This business has given her the opportunity to work from home as well as the time to better serve her community.
