Rhonda is one of our Client Service Representatives. She joined the team in November of 2011. After retiring from 35 years of teaching, she needed a little something to do. Rhonda had been a client since the early 70s and continued to follow Creekwood even after the move to Pontoon Beach. One day when she was in, she told Sara that she needed something to do, and didn't care about hours or pay. She just thought it might be interesting to work at Creekwood part-time. A few years later Sara called, and Rhonda started working officially in November of 2011. She still considers this her pleasure job. You can often find her taking care of family and just enjoying life!
