Seth Alan Rosenberg

About me

Seth has spent his entire working life advocating for the vulnerable and disadvantaged in our community. Seth began his professional career working for the Pima County Superior Court as a criminal investigator. He then obtained employment with the Veterans Administration operating their Health Care for Homeless Veterans program in Tucson and Portland. After leaving the VA, Seth served as executive director of several agencies in the Portland and Seattle area providing services to low-income and disabled adults and families.

Seth obtained his bachelor’s degree from the University of Adelaide, Australia, and an Honors Degree in Humanities at Flinders University of South Australia. Seth returned to the United States and obtained a Masters in Social Work from Arizona State University, graduating Phi Kappa Phi and Magna Cum Laude. Seth was then selected for the Social Work Leadership Training Group within the Veterans Administration, where he earned a Masters of Business Administration from Portland State University, graduating summa cum laude. Seth later augmented his management skills by attaining a Certificate in Human Resource Management from the University of Washington.

Seth attended the University of Washington School of Law. He specialized in administrative and employment law. During law school Mr. Rosenberg participated in internships with the Public School Employees of Washington, the U.S. Court, Western District of Washington, and Littler Mendelson in San Francisco. He also worked with the Innocence Project Northwest.

In his free time Seth serves on the Board of Directors of his son's non-profit day school.
