Growing up near Gettysburg, Rosie’s appreciation for local history began early. From tour guide to event planning and group sales, Rosie’s career in heritage tourism took-off in Philadelphia, where she worked at two of the city’s top attractions: Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site and The Walnut Street Theatre until her move to Las Vegas in 2015.
Rosie enjoys “everyday history” and creating community through tours. Since moving to Vegas Rosie became certified with the Las Vegas Tour Guide Guild. She has worked with Wayne Newton’s Casa de Shenandoah, Circus Circus, and as volunteer guide with The Neon Museum and NPF. Rosie is excited to aid NPF in growing heritage tourism programs throughout “undiscovered” Las Vegas and the state!
