She is a 12-year member of Open Door Church in Lonsdale and devotes her time to volunteering – especially cooking – for her church and community. She is the mother of four adult children.

“The meaningful insight from our resident commissioners benefits our board and our residents,” said Bob Whetsel, chair of KCDC’s Board of Commissioners. “Rosalind has a personal mission to serve her community and I look forward to working with her and welcome her to our dedicated and talented board.”
