She recently received a Commendation from the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival for Region 6 for costumes she designed for Central Methodist University.
Rohlfing holds a Bachelor's degree in Art Education and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from UMC. During her undergraduate studies at Columbia College, she became interested in dramatic arts, later changing her major to visual arts.

She has also costumed many productions for Fayette Area Community Theatre, Columbia Entertainment Co., Rock Bridge High School, and Oregon's Majestic Theatre. Other costuming includes Miss Missouri America productions and the Missouri Girls traveling performance troupe.
