Rose Heckenkamp-Busch

Rose is a member of the Madison Symphony Chorus, and she sang and danced with the Kids from Wisconsin. She studied abroad in Spain for a semester in college. Her favorite performance was singing the music live for the movie Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban while it was showing at the Overture Center!

Rose earned her bachelor’s degree from St. Norbert College in Spanish and Music and her master’s degree in Speech – Language Pathology from UW-Madison. While at UW, she was part of a pilot group doing research on the speech and language development of children in Guatemala and has been hooked on working with kids ever since! Rose has also worked in skilled nursing, rehabilitation, and home health settings with medically complex cases before coming to CI. She has special interests in swallowing and feeding disorders, voice therapy, early intervention, and bilingual children. Rose always looks for ways to integrate the values and needs of the family to create the most functional goals for every child. Outside of work, Rose can be found taking walks with her dog, Lola, reading, baking, and dreaming about traveling the world.
