Early life and education[edit]

She completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1988 at Cornell University, where she was a student-elected member of the Board of Trustees, a member of the Quill and Dagger society, and a member of the Zeta Phi chapter of Alpha Chi Omega. Rosenbaum received her Juris Doctor magna cum laude, in 1991 from the University of Miami School of Law.[2]

Legal career[edit]

She served as staff counsel for the United States Office of the Independent Counsel from 1995 to 1996. She worked as a litigation associate at Holland & Knight from 1996 to 1997. Rosenbaum then clerked for Judge Stanley Marcus of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in 1998. From 1998 to 2007, she served as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of Florida, becoming Chief of the Economics Crime Section in Fort Lauderdale in 2002.[2]

Judicial service[edit]

In 2007, Rosenbaum was selected to be a United States magistrate judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.[3][2]

On November 30, 2011, President Obama nominated Rosenbaum to be District Judge for the Southern District of Florida, to replace Alan Stephen Gold, who took senior status in 2010.[3] The United States Senate confirmed Rosenbaum in a 92–3 vote on June 26, 2012.[4] She received her commission on June 27, 2012.[2]
