Representative Rose is a proud alumna of Paul Quinn College. Her legislative focus includes mental health reform, access to affordable healthcare, and criminal justice reform. Currently, Representative Rose serves as a member of the House Committee on Appropriations; as Vice Chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Article II, which leads budget considerations on the Health and Human Services Commission; House Committee on Calendars; House Committee on Human Services, and as Vice Chair of the House Committee on Redistricting.

Some of her budgetary accomplishments include securing state funding for land acquisition and planning of a new state mental health facility serving Dallas/Fort Worth, state services that reduce the risk of children being removed from their homes, Early Childhood intervention program, as well as fully funding the Texas HIV/AIDS Medication Program (THMP). Representative Rose's other accomplishments include extending Medicaid healthcare benefits for new mothers postpartum from two to six months, allowing Dallas County to transport senior citizens to county-run health centers and wellness events, and designating December 1st as Rosa Parks Day.
