Member Spotlight: Rosh Wright
Rosh Wright was born in Jamaica and lived in the tropics until age 8 when her family moved back to London, England. Rosh attended a British boarding school for nine years and then entered nursing school and obtained her State Registered Nurse license. Thereafter she began to travel and spent five years in Canada before landing in Texas where she met her late husband, Jim Wright. They moved to the Bay Area and Rosh worked at Stanford Children’s Hospital. After her husband died, she worked for hospice and as a Legal Nurse Consultant before remarrying and moving to the Central Coast. That marriage ended in divorce, and Rosh can now be seen accompanied by her friend Steve Horne.
Somewhere in there Rosh began her second career, acting, and she has performed locally at SLO Rep and PCPA, in addition to various commercials, radio, webisodes, and yes, she appeared in the recent movie Destination Wedding as Keanu Reeves’ mother.
Rosh has also traveled extensively in Europe and worked in Austria and Germany as a tour guide. She has visited places like Hong Kong and worked for three months in Saudi Arabia. But Alaska and Antarctica are still on her bucket list!
Rosh is attracted to Villaggio because she has no children or family in the US and feels Villaggio would offer not only opportunities to pursue her interests in the arts, health, social interaction and exercise, but because it would offer a degree of security that she would not otherwise have under her given circumstances.
