Former Whanganui High School student Rosana grew up on a family farm and was involved from an early age. Her interest in the farm and strong broad subjects that she took at school in science and maths lead her to study at Massey University.
After university Rosana joined the Fonterra Graduate programme where she has thrived on the variety of the work. The graduate programme involved rotating around different departments to give varied work experience. It was during this time Rosana had the unique opportunity to gain work experience in China, supporting the commercial interests of Fonterra’s International Farming business.
Currently Rosanna works as a Business Analyst at Farm Source. “I am really enjoying my role, where I combine farm support, financial tools and the advice farmers need to grow profitably." Rosana hopes to continue to support the New Zealand Dairy Industry though her role at Farm Source. She does have her eye to the future however, with a longer term goal to hopefully own her own dairy farm.
