She is a strong supporter of encouraging the talents of young musicians and has also served as a substitute conductor for the Dayton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the Ovation Youth Orchestra with the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony Association.


Beyond the stage, Dr. Rome has served on music adjudicator panels, curriculum committees, hiring committees, and financial and budget committees.
