Rosabella Consulting, LLC was founded in 2011 in honor and memory of Ariana's grandmother, Rose Puzzutelli. Rose was a strong, independent and loving woman. She possessed a positive disposition that was contagious and encouraged Ariana to pursue her dreams. In January 2010, Rose passed away at the age of 95.
Rosabella Consulting, LLC honors her legacy and serves as a reminder of the values she lived by – perseverance, hard work, respect and compassion. Rosabella is Italian for Beautiful Rose, as Ariana’s grandmother had a knack for seeing the beauty in everything.
