Rose Davidson is a young at heart, fun-loving woman who is a little on the unconventional side. She has a ‘no-nonsense no ‘fluff’ attitude however, a kind and caring heart and personality to match. Sounds like a bit of a paradox, but true.
With more than 35 years of experience in high-level admin roles; both in the public and private sector; her career portfolio spans federal government, sporting organisations and small business ownership.
Tiring of the corporate world in 2014, she started her business, DOES Biz, in 2015, promoting the administration services that she could provide female entrepreneurs; however, this did not light her up.
In 2020, Rose changed the focus of her business as her passion lies in being visually creative and she now offers services that fulfil this passion to speakers, trainers, workshop facilitators etc.
As an advocate for social justice and an avid campaigner against all forms of abuse, Rose is passionate about equality and justice for all and she has volunteered her time at several organisations including:
- President of Healing Through Love South Australia and Tasmania; whose vision is to shift the awareness of domestic and family violence within the community and to support survivors.
- Former Secretary of FADVAN (Family and Domestic Violence Advocacy Network);
- UN Women (International Women’s Day Co-Event Coordinator);
- Oasis Wimmera (Immigrant Support Group – Board Member and Event Coordinator);
- Rotary Club of Horsham (Vic) – Board Member-elect (Fundraising).
What is particularly near and dear to her is the awareness of domestic and family violence against women, men, and children. Rose is a co-founder and current president of Healing Through Love, an awareness initiative started in Adelaide and is now in Hobart since she moved there in late 2019. Healing Through Love holds annual pamper day events for domestic and family violence survivors.
The concept is that local business owners come together to ‘pay it forward’ and offer their time and resources, giving women the opportunity to enjoy many free services such as massages, facials, makeup, hair styling, and personal styling. Various government and non-government services are invited to provide advice on legal, financial and well-being matters. The goal of holding the Pamper Day event is to help as many survivors of domestic violence in our community as possible by increasing awareness to the wider community and to offer advice on services available to survivors and their family members.
