Rose Kukwa – she/her
Rose was born and raised in Cameroon; a country located in west central Africa, just above the equator. She immigrated to the United States in 2010. Rose has a background in both Accounting and Human Services. She obtained her bachelor’s in accounting at the University of St Thomas and her master’s in human & Social Services at Walden University. She is a mother of 3 beautiful children. Rose is currently the CEO of Opportunity Community Services, also a mission-driven organization which she started with her husband back in 2013.
Rose joined Urban Boatbuilders because she believes that her experiences and values as a mother and as the CEO of a company serving the disadvantaged are very consistent with the values and interests of Urban Boatbuilders.
When not taking care of her business or her family, she’s helping others from her home country of Cameroon. It is easy to tell when Rose is energized or excited about something, because you will often spot her dancing!
