Born and raised in Hartford, CT, Roslynn spent nearly 12 years with Junior Achievement of Southwest New England as the Director of Education. After leaving her position with Junior Achievement, she held several roles focused on event management, customer service and administrative work. For the past 5 years, she has been employed as the Catering Coordinator for Panera Bread and will continue to hold this position part time while working for the Conference through Together We Thrive part time.
Roslynn said she has for several years had a strong desire to find a career that would allow her to feel a sense of giving back & faith.
"Sometimes God will make you wait on purpose so that you will know it was His favor that brought you through,’ she said. "This is why I am excited about this role. In my heart I believe that I have the ability to bring several assets to the program, but, I also know that this role will stir up something in me spiritually that has been dormant for far too long.”
Together We Thrive Program Director Heather Ramsey-Mabrouk said she is thrilled to have Roslynn on board.
"The skill and experience she brings from her previous work in the non-profit and education world along with her enthusiasm for the mission and vision of Together We Thrive and the Southern New England Conference make her a wonderful addition to our team," she said.
