Rhonda is a native of Oklahoma who moved to Montana in 2008, after retiring from AT&T with 31 years of service. After staying at home for 2 years she realized retirement wasn't for her and decided to return to the workforce. Fly Fishers International was a good fit and she was hired in 2011. She often says she utilizies all the skills she learned as a Community and Government Relations Area Manager for AT&T.
Her hobbies don't include fly fishing, but she is passionate about conservation of resources and educating people about how to become better stewards of this great place we call home...Earth.
She and her husband, Larry, live on a 25-acre ranchette in Paradise Valley with 2 horses, 2 turkeys, 2 goats, and 3 dogs.
