"Rosie was a contract Quality Consultant at Discovery Toys where I collaborated with her on a Quality System Analysis of the business. Rosie is one of the brightest, most capable individuals I have ever worked with in a corporate setting. She is extremely knowledgeable about her field, has very strong business acumen--from both a strategy and tactical perspective--and a very positive, professional demeanor. I now work as a recruiter and HR Consultant. I would hire Rosie, I would recommend Rosie, and I would trust Rosie with any business initiative she was assigned."

Claudia Tusset, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

"I worked closely with Rosie since 2015. Her knowledge and understanding of the Toy Industry requirements in safety and compliance has made a significant difference to our business. We have seen a reduction of over 50% in our costs while improving the consistency and accuracy of the information required on product and packaging. Rosie has streamlined our safety review yet expanded the factory compliance – what a combination!

Rosie created a comprehensive and detailed Product Safety and Quality Assurance Manual. Her documents have allowed our product managers to develop high quality and safe games, knowing that the end product will pass all required safety laws and regulations. Rosie has been a huge asset to University Games."

Cris Lehman, CFO and Co-Founder University Games

"I have been working for the Folkmanis Puppet Company for the past 25 years and we have hired Rosie many times to help us. Her knowledge of safety and quality concerns is unmatched. As designers she helped us in development so we did not have any safety problems in production. She always keeps up with the current safety regulations, which are complicated and ever changing. She not only is a safety expert, but is exceptional with product development and knows how to make product revisions to reduce risk and testing costs. Rosie made sure that we were in compliance with all the new safety regulations here, in Canada and Europe.

Rosie would be a proven asset to any company concerned with quality, safety and clear thinking."

Roxie Price, Product Designer Folkmanis Inc.
