She became a client of SSBx’s Bronx Energy Efficiency Program, and then an employee of SSBx. Working in environmental justice has made her more aware of the many needs and concerns, locally and globally.  Rhonda has more than a decade of work as an independent business consultant for small and mid-sized businesses. Prior to that, she spent nearly 20 years providing administrative assistance to companies in various industries, including investment banking and legal services. Rhonda has a B.A. in Liberal Arts from Touro College.  She and her husband of 27 years have raised their three children in the Bronx community she grew up in.
