Welcoming Dr. Rose!
As we excitedly await Dr. Elizabeth Rose’s start with Trestlewood Pediatrics, we want to give everyone the chance to get to know a little bit more about her! We asked her some questions and want to share her responses. Enjoy!
Where are you from?
I was born in Houghton Michigan and lived in the upper Peninsula for about 4 years. I grew up in Shelby Twp, Michigan.
Who or what inspires you in your career?
My parents inspired me to find a profession that I truly love, not just a job.
Why did you choose pediatrics?
In Pediatrics, you get to watch your patients and families grow and develop. I adore helping nervous first-time parents develop into confident second- or third-time parents. You get to see that evolution over the years and truly know your families well.
Also, taking care of kids also means that no two visits are ever the same. You could be talking Transformers in one room and the college visits in the next. An exam could happen under a table or entirely standing up. There is such variety in the interactions we have with patients. Kids keep you on your toes.
How long have you been practicing medicine?
About 12 years.
Are you married?
Yes. My husband’s name is Justin.
Do you have any children?
If so, how many? I have 3 kids. Élodie (8 y/o), Emeric (6 y/o) and Esmé (3 y/o)

Disney World, France, and Napa.

Potatoes. Really any kind. A great friend once surprised me with a birthday party where all of the guests brought a different kind of dish made out of potatoes.
If you could time travel, when and where would you go?
1950s, Pleasant Ridge Michigan. To really get to know my paternal grandmother who passed when I was 3 y/o.
