Rose Emrick’s career path has led her to many places throughout Pennsylvania. “Continuing my education is extremely important to me. While my journey has been different from my peers, I know the value in sharing my story,” she explains. She is the Senior Vice President, Chief of Staff at Malvern Bank, National Association.
“While working full time in banking, I obtained my Associates in Business Administration from Montgomery County Community College, as well as my Certification in Human Resource Management from Delaware County Community College,” she shares.
“I completed the ABA Stonier Graduate School of Banking at University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School in 2020, receiving a Stonier Diploma as well as a Leadership Certification from The Wharton School,” Rose Emrick stated. “I also began my Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources through Capella University’s FlexPath Program.”
Attending the Stonier Graduate School was an opportunity presented to Rose by her President and CEO, Anthony C. Weagley. “As a graduate of the program himself, he knew it offered the highest standard of Executive Education,” she says. “After three years of classes with senior bankers, I graduated in 2020 and knew I was set up for success in the next stage of my career.”
Rose credits two people for seeing her and helping her along her path to where she is today. “Debbie Greenstein, the Dean of Students at Upper Merion Area High School at the time, recognized that I was struggling with depression and self-worth as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.”
“Debbie taking the time out of her day to check on me taught me resilience: to get back up if I was ever kicked down. Through her, I learned the value of being there for others so that they, too, could start believing in themselves,” Rose shares.
“Kelly Mkadem was my first manager in my professional career at Bank of America. She was a working mother. I loved that she empowered other women consistently to grow in their careers. She wanted to see those around her grow because her success was watching others succeed,” she added. “Each position in my career, she would root for me and still roots for me to this day.”
Rose Emrick shares her love for this area, with a special place for Montgomery County. “I’ve lived here practically my whole life, and I plan to raise my family here. I love the soccer community in this area. I have been involved in Tri-County Women’s Soccer League, the King of Prussia soccer club, and the Westmont women’s soccer team,” she explains. “While supporting the local restaurant industry during the pandemic was challenging, there is definitely a restaurant for every occasion in Montgomery County.”
