A native of southeast Michigan, Rosemary and her husband John, lived in Orion and Addison Townships for 25 years. Their daughter, Erin, a proud graduate of Lake Orion High School, followed in her mother’s footsteps to pursue a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) career, earning a PhD in microbiology and teaching at Skidmore College. Rosemary and John have spent the last six years living in Beverly Hills, near her Troy-based business.
Rosemary grew up in New Baltimore, Michigan. She is a part of a large family that emphasizes the values of hard work, education, supporting the community and serving others.
Her father followed his military service with decades at General Motors and retired early to expand his involvement in civic leadership. He served as Mayor of New Baltimore and with Rosemary’s mother, they started the Anchor Bay Community Foundation. Her mother was President of both the Chamber of Commerce and the Historical Society. To this day, her mother continues to volunteer actively.
Early on, Rosemary drew inspiration from her parents and took on leadership roles in sports teams, student government and clubs. She advocated for a new school and volunteered for national election campaigns throughout her student years.
