IT Professional and Entrepreneur
Rhonda Smith Hicks is a wife, mother of two, IT professional, entrepreneur and cancer survivor. She is originally from New Jersey, however, has called North Carolina home for more than 25 years. Rhonda holds a degree in Business Administration Management from Meredith College and, because of her latest endeavors, is currently seeking certification in Positive Psychology at The University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. Her corporate career has been in the fields of telecommunications and IT, primarily focusing on project, account, and personnel management. In November 2009, Rhonda launched her first entrepreneurial venture – Amazing Grace Event Management (AGEM). Over the past several years, she has had the opportunity to plan and manage events spanning from milestone celebrations and weddings to small business and large corporate tradeshows on both a national and international scale. Rhonda recently launched the latest branch of AGEM entitled The Accountability Workshop, which is centered around providing tools and tips to help everyone to hold themselves accountable to their goals and aspirations. These workshops have been presented to groups on both professional and personal settings.
Rhonda is an active member of her community. She is also a contributing columnist for New Focus Daily magazine, a women’s lifestyle magazine, which provides a go-to guide for strategies about health and wellness, cancer survivorship, money, career, relationships, inspiration and more. She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, whose main thrusts are Sisterhood, Scholarship, and Service.
Rhonda is also a Sunday school teacher and member of the Youth Ministry Leadership Team at her church. When Rhonda is not busy taking her daughter to Girl Scouts or cheering on her son at his sporting events, she loves to travel and enjoys hosting gatherings at her home to bring family and friends together for food, fun, and fellowship!
Her latest venture, Project She™, is her personal passion. Because she lives the life of a busy wife, mommy, and businesswoman, Rhonda understands the challenges and stressors that can be overwhelming daily. This project was born out of those experiences and it is her hope this forum will serve as a place for women to support one another in the name of encouragement and positivity through the powerful bond of womanhood.
