Rosalynn received her undergraduate from the University of North Texas alongside Toni Scalise, owner of Corbella Counseling, where she majored in Education and minored in Special Education. She taught 6 years at both the elementary and middle school levels before graduating with her Masters in Education from the University of North Texas and becoming a school counselor.
