Below are 5 questions and answers to help you get to know Rhonda better! 

What is your favorite aspect of your job, your business, or your industry?
My favorite aspect of leading a nonprofit organization is creating change for our clients and making big waves in the community with limited resources. I’m innovative, resourceful, and unintimidated by the unique challenges of the nonprofit world. I enjoy managing my budgets responsibly while keeping my eyes on the next financial opportunity for the organization. 

What does the next year have in store for you?
Next year, I plan on implementing mentoring programs for girls and hosting a full day conference for young ladies in grades 6-12. The conference will include workshop tracks on topics such as financial literacy, leadership development, and communication skills. The mentoring program will consist of group mentoring for girls in middle school. 

How does your business help the community? 
My nonprofit helps by providing free programs and resources to women and girls in all stages of their life. The programs are mentoring, health and wellness classes, and support groups for women suffering with mental health issues and awareness. The organization has also provided gift cards to help needy families during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

What book would you recommend to an aspiring Women in Business?
How Women Rise: Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back from Your Next Raise, Promotion, or Job is an approachable guide designed to instruct women on how to overcome the 12 habits holding them back from their next raise, promotion, or job. The authors are Sally Helgesen and Marshall Goldsmith, who are business leadership experts.
