Rhonda has been employed with Southwest Employment Services, a Nova Scotia Works Employment Centre since 2000. She reports directly to the society’s board of directors. Some of her responsibilities are to plan, direct, evaluate and coordinate the society’s operations of human resources and personnel activities, implement policies, programs and procedures regarding human resource planning, recruitment, training and development, and benefit administration. She is also responsible for all financial accountability of the society’s finances, and relations between management/employees and the society’s board of directors.

Rhonda was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba where she began her education. She later moved to Calgary, Alberta where she graduated from High School. Rhonda pursued post-secondary education at the University of Calgary where she graduated with a Certificate in Business Management. In 1990, she moved to Clare, Nova Scotia in large part to the beauty of the landscape and the friendliness of the residents. She then continued her studies with the University of Calgary long distance.

Rhonda’s past work experience background is in the banking industry. Before joining Southwest Employment Services, she worked for the Royal Bank for a period of thirteen years. She also enjoys volunteering and acts as Treasurer on Yarmouth Life Skills for Disabled Adults, and Seafest Association. She recently joined the board of directors for Inclusion Clare, formerly Atelier de Clare. She also volunteers at local events when possible.

Rhonda really enjoys working for Southwest Employment Services as she finds her position very challenging. She feels the team and the board members work very well with each other. Inclusion is very important to Rhonda and stives for equity for all. She also feels her human relations’ skills have improved during her employment as she tries to be sensitive to the different needs of others.
