Hello! I am Rosie Frankowski, a cross country skier, born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Growing up on the Southwest side of the city, I began cross country skiing on the Southwest High School team, progressing to represent the Central Division (Midwest, Great Lakes) at Junior Nationals in 2009 and 2010. During this time I moved to Marquette, Michigan, to attend Northern Michigan University while competing on NMU’s NCAA Nordic Skiing and Cross Country Running teams.

I graduated in 2013 with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and Spanish with a minor in History. I continued on to graduate with my Masters in Public Administration from NMU in December 2014.

During my time at NMU, I received three All-American honors (2013, 2014), finished runner-up at the NCAA National Championships (2014) and earned a spot on the 2014 United States Under 23 World Championship Ski Team.

Now I am pursuing my goals and dreams of skiing professionally through joining Alaska Pacific University’s Elite Team, a professional team out of Anchorage, Alaska. I also obtained my Masters in Business Administration from APU in 2016. Outside of full-time training and racing, I currently work as a project manager for Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd. and adjunct teach at Alaska Pacific University.
