When she’s not busy being busy, or traveling around seeking content for her travel column… you’ll find RoseAnna rowing, running, curling, playing hockey, doing yoga, riding her bike, trying to break 100 on any given golf course, or out roaming somewhere in the Canadian wilderness… the more remote the better…
