Rosa’s passion for nutrition came from her struggle to manage food allergies and intolerances. Over time, she found strength in her challenges and transformed them into a unique understanding of the importance of nutrition in health. Rosa is an advocate for plant-based nutrition, sustainable weight loss, general healthy eating, and gastrointestinal health. She believes that food plays a significant role in our social and cultural interactions, and that food is one of the simple pleasures of life. Rosa’s life and professional accomplishments help her be the perfect ally in her patient’s journey toward better health. She’s here to help patients understand that good health isn’t just about figuring out how to survive but rather to thrive. Before Culina Health, Rosa worked as an inpatient dietitian at UCHealth and with Dietitians on Demand.
Rosa is an empathetic counselor who creates a judgment-free space to empower and support her clients on their journey. Her counseling style is gentle and patient-centered with an emphasis on intuitive eating. Rosa firmly believes in taking a balanced approach to nutrition, and that all foods fit.
Rosa loves exploring the Colorado great outdoors. She finds joy in discovering hidden gems while ‘glamping’, experimenting with new vegan recipes, and exploring local restaurants. Her hobbies include skiing, hiking, board games, snuggling with her dog, Berlin, and spending time with family and friends.
