Rosey's roots in North Dakota go back four generations. On one side of the family, Rosey's great grandparents homesteaded on the family farm in Cavalier County near Langdon, and on the other side of the family her great grandmother ran a small business in the neighboring town of Munich. Rosey grew up working in her family's agricultural repair business and learning about family farms and small businesses in the process.

After graduating from law school, Rosey represented the State Water Commission and the State Engineer until she was promoted by the Attorney General to head up the State and Local Government division which provided legal counsel to numerous state agencies. Over her career, Rosey has litigated and negotiated for and advised many state agencies including the Bank of North Dakota, the State Mill and Elevator, the State Agriculture Department, the State Health Department, the Department of Public Instruction, and the Public Employee's Retirement System. Rosey late served as an Administrative Law Judge for more than a decade presiding in over 300 state and local administrative hearings.

Rosey's small business and family farm background, her knowledge about multiple areas of the law, and her experience as an advisor, litigator, and an administrative law judge laid a strong foundation for her work at Baumstark Braaten Law Partners. She now focuses on probate and estate planning, and agricultural law.
