Rose Yaguchi, Talent Financing Manager

Rose.jpg

Rose is a part of the O@W team pioneering talent finance. In this role, she is aiming to redesign the training and education financing system to better serve overlooked and underrepresented individuals. Currently, the team is focused on designing, testing, and ultimately scaling viable solutions.

Rose was drawn to this work given her finance and accounting background combined with her entrepreneurial endeavors in the consumer finance space. Outside of work, she continues to run a women-focused personal finance community group that leverages peer learning, goal setting and storytelling (think weight watchers for personal finance).

Prior to Opportunity@Work, Rose has covered multiple roles across auditing, consulting, and marketing. While these have been very different paths, the skills of thinking analytically, systematically tackling ambiguous problems, mobilizing teams, and applying an entrepreneurial spirit have been common threads.

When she's not pioneering, Rose can most likely be found exploring the local trails with her husband and adopted dog, Waffles!
