Rose attended Highland Hall through her lower school years and is teaching some practical arts in the lower school. Prior to the pandemic, Rose worked at Side Street Projects. Based in Altadena, the organization operated from school buses (converted into mini-woodshops) that they drove around LA County teaching woodwork to students after school. Before that, she worked on many set production jobs in various art departments. She also attended Bennington College, and while there worked for the school's carpenters and monitored the woodshop.
