The daughter of an Army Veteran who served in Germany after WWII, Leona is a lifelong patriot who brings a unique blend of more than 24 years of non-profit, private and public industry, and entrepreneurial leadership experience to The Rosie Network (TRN). As an entrepreneur and small business owner, she is honored to serve in her role and working with an amazing team of entrepreneurial military spouses and veterans in helping to develop The Rosie Network as a household name for the 70% of Americans who say they want to patronize veteran and military family-owned businesses.Our military families give and sacrifice so much at home and abroad during and beyond their service and they represent the heart and soul of our nation. The Rosie Networks is a great avenue for patriots and today’s consumers to give back and to honor our military families and veterans who make up one of the fastest growing segments of small business enterprise, while receiving the highest quality products and services. Her unique blend of nonprofit, corporate and private industry expertise includes finance/investor relations, communications, marketing and public/community relations management for high tech privately and publicly held companies, accounting and finance firms and professional sports organizations, as well as start-up corporations. Her operational “Boots on the Ground” nonprofit experience came from large national/international organizations including the American Red Cross and March of Dimes, and San Diego Regional advocacy groups such as Promises2Kids. In 2008, she founded her boutique PR/Marketing firm specializing in helping local nonprofit, grass root organizations with strategic and event planning, operational development, marketing and fundraising. Clients have included Camp HOPE and the San Diego Family Justice Center, the National Center for Deaf Advocacy, the San Diego Police Foundation, International Association of Chiefs of Police and the SEAL-NSW Family Foundation to name a few. A lifelong athlete and outdoor enthusiast, Leona spends her leisure time enjoying her four horses, and many animals who keep her, her husband and daughter quite busy on their small ranch in the picturesque foothills of San Diego County.
