Rosie works on Y Lab's Arts and Health programme with a focus on how arts interventions can play a more prominent role in the health and wellbeing of people in Wales.

Rosie manages the Arts and Health programme and also works with Nesta's People Powered Results team to provide coaching to the teams in each Health Board to facilitate innovation and change via the chosen method for this programme, the 100 Day Challenge.

Before Y Lab, she worked in a range of charities and non-profits leading arts and health projects, including the Tenovus Cancer Care 'Sing with Us' choirs, the Military Wives Choirs and most recently Breathe Arts Health Research, an innovative social enterprise bringing music, magic, dance and other performing arts into various hospital and community settings. She loves research and interspersed her time in these roles with a year out in 2017–18 to complete an MA in Anthropology and Community Arts at Goldsmiths University.

She enjoys singing, going to gigs and festivals, spending foodie time with family & friends, and going on international adventures whenever she can. She also loves dogs but doesn't yet own one, so likes to spend time borrowing other people's (with their permission of course) or going for walks and meeting new dogs.
