Rosa was born in El Paso, Texas, but spent most of her time growing up in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. In 2002 Rosa moved to Alabama. During the time of transition, Rosa became aware of struggles people face finding available resources within the community, and how language barriers have a tremendous impact in their daily lives. Upon this realization, Rosa decided to embark on a new journey and become a family and immigration advocate.
She graduated with a focus in Applied Science in 2010 and worked for the Alabama Hispanic Interests Coalition (HICA!) From May 2011 to February 2017. Ms. Guzman has helped many families find resources within the community to enable them to be proactive and thrive in their daily lives and activities. She also has experience working with victims to create an emergency plan, sign court orders, seek shelter, gather evidence, and find community resources.
Rosa has been a BIA-accredited representative for several years and has worked extensively with victims of crime and domestic violence as a VAWA interim specialist. She has a passion for guiding our voters through the immigration process in an effective way. She has also served as an advocate for Family and Immigration to assist the community in the Family Reunification Process, which included fingerprinting and counseling from sponsors. Rosa has also participated in several committees to advocate for the community and to share not only the dynamics of the Hispanic community, but also the richness of their culture.
Rosa is the mother of a wonderful 14-year-old son who loves to play soccer. During her free time, Rosa loves to go to concerts, go dancing, travel, meet new people, and spend time with family.
