Rosa was born and raised in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. She had her first taste of the stage as a child dancer in local musical theater shows and school productions, and always loved painting, singing, dancing, and performing in general. They continued to live in her heart even through the years when they were kept on the back burner while she pursued a more "traditional" academic education. It was only after getting a degree in Civil Engineering in the Dominican Republic and an M.S. in Construction Management from New York University, that she finally succumbed to the everlasting need to express herself through the arts. The great creative energy of New York City got her good!
At that time she started formal vocal training, as well as acting classes. She completed the Meisner Conservatory at The Acting Studio, Inc. under the tutelage of James Price, and made her New York City stage debut in 2010 as Juliet, in a Chelsea Repertory production of William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet", directed by the brilliant John Grabowski.
Since then, Rosa has continued to pursue a career in theater. One of her favorite recent productions is "Rally Cry", an original play by Puertorrican playwright Nancy Nevarez, which included a beautiful display of dancing, singing, and live afro-latin music. She was recently seen in Chelsea Repertory's production of the original one act play "Sangre y Viento", in New York City. She's also a resident artist of Core Ensemble, starring in their show "Tres Vidas", in which she gets to play the icon Frida Kahlo, as well as the remarkable Latinas: Alfonsina Storni and Rufina Amaya.
Rosa has participated in a number of short films, commercials, internet, and industrial projects. Ultimately, her biggest desire is to find a unique way to leave her mark in the world.
