Rosanna started playing water polo over 10 years ago. She began just for fun at Windermere Pool in the summer and started playing at the club level in Dollard, Quebec at age 13. She made the Quebec team at age 15 and made the Junior National Team at 17. Rosanna eventually became a part of the Senior National team at age 20.
Rosanna started her international water polo career on the right foot with a gold medal at the 2003 Junior World Championships in Calgary, Alberta. As one of the five players selected for the shoot out in the gold medal game versus the USA, Rosanna has showed her ability to perform under pressure. That goal is definitely one of the highlights of her career.
There have been many highlights since then, but the one in most recent memory is the silver medal at the World Championships in Rome in 2009.
When she isn't training, Rosanna enjoys singing, playing her guitar, reading, writing, watching good movies, going on adventures with great friends, and thinking of ways that she can change the world.
Rosanna obtained her Bachelors of Science in Biology with a minor in Music at Loyola Marymount University, and has started a Master of Liberal Studies at the University of Southern California.
