Rhonda grew up in Stoney Creek which is just outside of Hamilton, Ontario. She attended Brock University, where she graduated with a B.A. in Child Studies. Following her graduation from Brock, Rhonda worked for the Catholic Children’s Aid Society as a Special Needs Worker.  Rhonda eventually felt a call to combine her love of children with her love of God and entered Huron College, London, Ontario, in September of 1988, to pursue a Master of Divinity Degree and to work towards Ordination in the Diocese of Niagara.

In 1991, Rhonda was ordained as a Deacon for the Diocese of Niagara and in 1992 was ordained to the Priesthood in the Diocese of Niagara. In 2004, Rhonda felt a call to pursue a career in Hospital Chaplaincy (something she felt gifted for after completing a Clinical Pastoral Education Unit at Kitchener-Waterloo Hospital as part of her Master of Divinity Training) and became employed with St. Joseph’s Health Centre, Sudbury, as a Hospital Chaplain. Today, Rhonda continues as a Hospital Chaplain with Health Sciences North and in June 2015, Rhonda was appointed Lead Chaplain for the Health Sciences North Spiritual and Religious Care Department.

Rhonda in her spare time loves to read, cook, bake and spend time with whatever furry friend is blessing her life at the time.
