Board of Directors
Sunny Rosanbalm – President and Founder
Sunny Rosanbalm is the President and founder of Tucker’s House as well as the grandmother of Tucker Rosanbalm, the inspiration for Tucker’s House.
Tucker was born with a seizure disorder called Infantile Spasms. Tucker has been seizure free since he was 4 months old but the seizures left him with severe developmental delays. Tucker turned 5 in February of 2011 and does not walk, talk or crawl but he is a delight and blessing to the whole family.
The journey of Tucker and his parents brought to light the huge need for families that have children with disabilities to make their homes accessible and therapy friendly.
Sunny has spoken with therapists and families that have made it clear that there is a serious need to help families make their homes adequate for their child with disabilities. Not only does an inadequate home add stress to an already difficult situation but it is also unsafe for the child and caregiver. A home that has been modified to the specific their needs allows the child to perform the necessary daily therapies.
Sunny has 20 years of experience in construction management and architectural design along side her husband, Mike, who has been a contractor for over 30 years. Sunny & Mike are the proud grandparents of 13 children.
