With Rhonda, clients of Velocity Procurement will receive a diverse portfolio characterized by real world experience from not only the corporate world, but also military service. She began her professional career after graduating from Rogers State University and enlisting into the U.S. Army Reserves as a Civil Affairs Specialist. Upon completion of all Military training Rhonda returned back home to continue her education at the University of Oklahoma earning her Bachelors degree in Sociology and commissioned into the Army Reserves as a Military Intelligence Officer through the OU R.O.T.C. program.
Once her super secret training was completed Rhonda returned home, met her future husband and ran off to Oregon where she landed an opportunity as an Electronics Purchasing Agent for a drone company. Later Rhonda left Oregon for Texas, where everything was bigger. She found her next opportunity as a Proposal Coordinator for an Educational Testing company and got married in Eureka Springs, AR. But wouldn’t you know it, just as things started to settle down she received her Deployment orders to support Operation New Dawn.
Rhonda flew off to Iraq, did some amazing administration work in the big sandbox thousands of miles away, and returned home promptly moving on to her next opportunity with a popular Las Vegas, NV Casino. She began working as a Marketing Buyer, promoted to Manager, and then Director. In parallel she completed her Military term as a Captain and Company Commander overseeing supply and logistics (ammunition and water).
Rhonda is passionate in partnering with clients in supporting project management activities, procurement policy development, process design, and deploying new innovative solutions. She is a balance between task master and your favorite bartender which you can disuse your problems, ideas, and aspirations with.
