BIO  


Grace De La Rosa has been working as a commercial and corporate actor, spokesperson, voice-over talent and print model since 1986. She took a break from 2002 to 2009 to raise a family and recover from Stage 3(c) colon cancer and chemotherapy. In 2010, she re-entered the TV and film industry.

Grace created Be a Blue Buddy, a colon cancer awareness campaign, in 2014. Be a Blue Buddy is not an organization, but rather a personal call to action through public speaking, reaching out to city and state officials, and using social media to help raise awareness of colon cancer, the importance of screening and early detection in support of survivors; to give hope to newly diagnosed patients, and to honor those who have died from this disease. Most importantly, as a survivor, Grace shares her story to empower and inspire others, and help save lives. She is passionate about giving back to the community as a public speaker, spokesperson and colon cancer advocate.

Grace attended the University of North Florida (UNF), interned as a TV reporter at WJXT-TV4 and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications and TV Broadcasting with a minor in psychology.

She worked in public radio while also being involved in the fitness industry as a fitness writer, AFAA-certified fitness instructor, fitness/swimwear model and NPC fitness competitor.

Grace strives for joyful learning and living, and is willing to step outside of her comfort zone. She has experienced snow skiing, scuba diving, skydiving, paintball wars, and traveling. Grace likes to soak in the culture's history of traditions, arts, architecture and daily lifestyle--eating and sleeping as the locals do. She realized her childhood dream of visiting Greece; Oia-Santorini completely captured her heart! Next on her overseas travel list: Italy!

She enjoys the arts, literature, and botanical gardens. She is a beach girl at heart. Anything related to the sun and skyscapes capture her attention. Her favorite colors are orange and gold.. A few of of her favorite scents are fresh cotton/linen, the ion shift just before a rainy day, and a freshly mowed lawn.

Grace grew up in Atlantic Beach, FL--the eldest of four in a close-knit family. She lived abroad in Spain and Japan while her father served in the Navy. Her parents are still happily married after 50+ years. Grace has two children, and after living in South Carolina, Hawaii and Maryland, currently lives back "home" in Jacksonville, FL.
