Rosanna’s design career began in 2016, when she started a business drawing floor plans, creating mood boards, designing 3D renderings, and helping in selection of furniture. While attending Eastern Michigan University for a B.S. in interior design, she started working for a small high-end residential interior design firm as a CAD Drafter. “During my time in the program, my career goal was to go into commercial and hospitality design – but working at this firm quickly changed my mind,” says Rosanna. “My passion for residential design rapidly grew with each project. It was thrilling to see a project from concept to completion and to be there every step of the way with the clients, helping them make their project goals come to life.” After her experience with residential design, Rosanna wanted to expand her knowledge in kitchen and bath and saw the perfect opportunity to grow as a designer with KSI.

“Designing is such a thrill. To me, it’s like a puzzle. It is exciting to be able to take all the parts and pieces and create a beautiful project that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional. I always had a passion for art and design,” notes Rosanna. “As a kid, I was always sketching and painting. When I discovered I can do that on the computer… I knew this was what I wanted to do. To be able to take ideas and create a conceptional rendering is amazing.”

Outside of work, Rosanna loves to cook and bake. “After finding out that I have an allergy to gluten, I am always finding recipes for dinner or dessert and re-creating them to meet my dietary needs. I love to substitute ingredients and see if the final product will turn out just as good. Alongside that, I enjoy finding new shows and movies to watch in my free time.”
