Rosanne has held the position of Second Flute with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra since 2004. Before moving to Vancouver, Rosanne lived in Saskatchewan where she was the Principal Flute with the Regina Symphony Orchestra and taught at the Conservatory of Performing Arts and the University of Regina.
An active solo and chamber musician, Rosanne has appeared as a soloist with the Regina Symphony, the Georgian Bay Symphony and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.

Rosanne maintains a busy teaching studio for all ages at home and at the VSO School of Music. Her two young daughters, Grace and Lily, have recently inspired her to learn more about early childhood music education, including the Colourstrings and Colour Flute teaching methods.
Rosanne received her formal training from the University of Toronto, the Glenn Gould Professional School, and the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. Her teachers have included Jeanne Baxtresser, Nora Shulman and Kathleen Rudolph, former Associate Principal Flute and Piccolo with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
