Rose started her in-house legal career with Wells Fargo. As her career progressed, she later joined other well known financial institutions like PNC and Wachovia. Rose’s legal practice focused mostly on supporting capital markets and derivatives product teams for the wholly-owned bank subsidiaries. Back when a lawyer could still be a derivatives generalist, Rose covered interest rate, foreign exchange, credit, equity and energy derivative transactions. When the financial crisis hit in 2008, Rose needed to make a pivot in her career and found a home with Sempra Energy in San Diego where she was brought on to support the retail energy and renewables businesses.
