Rose took last year off to go back to school and gain a Technical Communication Certificate. Prior to going back to school, Rose worked nine years as a part time newspaper reporter and eleven years as a pharmacy billing technician. Rose received her Bachelor's degree from Indiana State University in 2003 having majored in both English and History. Rose can write about anything given the appropriate time to research a topic. Rose feels that her writing skills have greatly improved this past year having learned how to effectively write and design technical documents.
During her nine years as a reporter, Rose worked for the Danville, Illinois Commercial News covering local government and school meetings in her hometown of Covington, Indiana and nearby Veedersburg, Indiana. She enjoyed her time as a reporter and learning local governments worked and operated. Rose developed several useful skills as a writer during her time with the Commercial News including: writing efficiently, maintaining good rapport with contacts, and determining what should be included in a report and what could be left out.
For eleven years, Rose worked full time for Walgreens Accounting and Genpact in Danville, Illinois as a pharmacy billing technician. The job informed her immensely about how work pharmacies work and operate, and also, about working on a multi-disciplinary team. Rose worked on a small team called Retro Billing, but on a daily basis worked and communicated with other departments, pharmacists, patients, insurance companies, management, and other team members.
