Rose is a lifelong Manteca resident with over 30 years of experience in commercial and residential interior design. She opened SPACES in 2012 with the objective of creating, building, and designing “inspirational and style-forward spaces” for clients that reflect their personality and goals whether it is their home or a commercial endeavor. Rose’s core team consists of son Kevin Rose who manages the firm’s remodel jobs and granddaughter Chandler Rose who assists with marketing and design.
Besides numerous private residences throughout the Central Valley her handiwork is reflected in the design of Ernie’s restaurant, Cabana del Sol, the Raymus Homes Raceway Collection model homes, and Steves Chevrolet in Oakdale.
After losing her mother to Alzheimer’s Rose developed a passion of working toward finding a cure for the disease.
Working with her brother Mel Loureiro they began their own non-profit — Music for Alzheimer’s — after noting how hearing old, familiar music would bring a positive response from her mother. The non-profit gathers and distributes CDs to comfort those affected with the disease as well as fundraise to help efforts to find a cure.
They have collected more than 4,000 CDs as well as raising more than $42,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association.
Over the years she has conducted other fundraisers to help families with medical bills as well as school athletics.
She was honored as the Manteca Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Small Business of the Year owner.
Rose served as the first female president of the Manteca Ripon Pentecost Society in 2004-2005.
