Introducing myself and my journal: Rhonda's Journal

About Me:
I came to be at World Pulse about 6 months after a big relocation to Portland from Denver, Colorado--big because of the number years we were in Colorado: more than 30 years! I love World Pulse, its mission, the energy, the sense of community and commitment to community and women everywhere. I am learning to love Portland!

My professional passion is the Nonprofit sector, where I work to leverage the data, financial resources and human capacity to create and communicate real impact, build organizational capacity and improve sustainability. I love the practices of Financial Management, Organizational Development and Impact/Performance Measurement/Management within all of that. Before World Pulse, I practiced these specialties through my own consulting practice. Earlier in my career, I worked in the Corporate sector, where I learned a lot and met some wonderful and talented people.

I completed a Masters Degree last year in Global Nonprofit Leadership and Management through Regis University in Denver, CO.

I am married to a talented Architect/Artist, daughter to a feisty 90-year-old mom, and proud mother to two grown sons. I have one lovely daughter-in-law, and I love breaking all the stereotypes there! I have a lot of creative energy, for an Accountant (accountants are rumored to be too linear for artistic leanings), that is! I hold a Certificate in Rocky Mountain Gardening, I play the Celtic Harp, and I recently created and developed a business designing and making handbags. I manage to make a lot of time for work, in spite of my 'real' life!

More than you wanted to know. I am so happy to be at World Pulse!

My Passions:
My Family, Great Art, Great Music, and Horticulture

My Challenges:
Taking on too much

My Vision for the Future:
A world without fear

My Areas of Expertise:
Letting go....developed by learning the hard, painful way

Welcome to World Pulse,

Welcome to World Pulse, Rhonda, where we love to "hear" the adventures of others through the use of journaling. Your visions are one step closer to achievement when you network in such a strong group of empowered people. You are only one person, but you are smart enough to know that our power is exponential when combined with other powerful people.

You certainly didn't write more than I want to know. You sound like a fascinating woman with a fascinating story. It is a particular passion of mine to encourage woman to write what we think and how we succeed because this is the only way our true history as women will be created and preserve for the future.

You are now a part of a thriving grassroots network of women leaders and supporters from more than 190 countries. See the Getting Started Guide to learn more about networking in our community:

I look forward to hearing more of your voice in WorldPulse.

Continue to be a blessing.
