Doctor. Designer. Entrepreneur.
An orthopedic surgeon turned shoe designer, Dr. Rose married fashion and function in 1998 and changed the footwear industry forever. A high heel lover herself, Dr. Rose saw a need to combine her knowledge of foot biomechanics and passion for fashion to spread ease to women everywhere. What started in a garage grew to a 40 million dollar business with boutiques all over the country. Rose has been featured on a variety of television programs, newspapers and magazines including Oprah, CNN, Today Show, New York Times, People Magazine, Entrepreneur, In Style, Elle and countless more. Dr. Rose sold her business in 2008 and became passionate about technology. Unleashing her inner geek, Dr. Rose is currently working on DRESR, a game changing technology company delivering an entirely new e-commerce experience. "I see the future of fashion as where fashion and technology intersect," says Dr. Rose.
