Rosalinda is the Founder and CEO of Incite Network, an organization of change makers along the U.S.-Mexico border to level the playing field for those who do the work but do not always receive the funding. Incite Network professionals create immediate change in unjust settings or communities where inequity exists by securing grant funds, guiding strategic planning, and supporting compliance after transformational grant funding is awarded. Rosalinda has 20+ years of experience working with federal, state, and nonprofit communities to achieve their missions. Her background includes overseeing commercialization centers and entrepreneurship programming and a passion for economic development and access to quality healthcare.

Rosalinda has secured over $250 million for some of the most impoverished communities in the nation. Her network of firms and subject matter experts have secured billions in areas for economic prosperity. Incite Network has two offices (New Mexico and Texas) with clientele across 25 states and mobilizes a network of over 50 specialty firms to complete initiatives to further economic prosperity and equity.

Her expertise includes economic development, job creation, commercialization, and health care/life sciences, emphasizing the Mexican American community and the U.S./Mexico border. Rosalinda received her Bachelor’s in Science from Texas Tech University in Human Development and Family Studies with a core concentration in Substance Abuse and Addiction. She earned her Master’s in Public Administration with a concentration in Finance and Border Health from the University of Texas at El Paso.

Rosalinda has a history of leading teams to success for large regional and statewide change for health equity.
