Roschke added: "I'm thrilled to not only be a part of Rise, but to be asked to take on a leadership role to expand its North American presence. I have a passion for mentoring, which aligns well with the goals of Rise, and I'm excited that SDVI supports my work with Rise and our shared goals for lifting up women in our industry."
