Rosita received her degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology in 1977 from the University of El Rosario in Bogotá, Colombia. She began her career at the Bogotá Children's Hospital and with the region's local health services where she held several high-ranking positions, including being a board member in Colombia's National Association of Speech Language Pathologists.
In 1988, Rosita and her family immigrated to Calgary where she first worked at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. In 1991, Rosita initiated a program offering speech language services in Spanish. Since then, Rosita continues to provide speech therapy to preschool and school-aged children from multiple linguistic backgrounds.
Rosita is a visible member of the immigrant community. She was a board member of Calgary Immigrant Aid Society's "Mosaic Centre," and was nominated for an Immigrant of Distinction Award. She received the Media Award from the Canadian Association of Speech Language Pathologists and Audiologists for her professional outreach in the Spanish language community.
Rosita’s work focuses on assessment, consultation and intervention of communication disorders in early language preschoolers and school age population.
