Rosie’s goals are to travel with her family, experience new cuisines and art museums around the world. She plays the piano but enjoys listening to the acoustic guitar. For relaxation, nothing beats hunkering down to watch an iconic film or rereading a favorite book (Jane Austen, that means YOU!) She and her husband delight in the antics of their grandnieces.

Raving Fans

“In preparation for our annual spring meeting for our association there are many moving parts, and OMG handled this effortlessly. Two weeks before our event was to happen, our association had to make the executive decision to convert the entire weekend to virtual due to COVID-19. OMG was tremendously prepared and immediately went to work on the registrations, meeting set-up, and helped manage the emails/questions that occurred. We were very appreciative of their help in making a quick transition of this project, and making it run so smoothly. ”
