Ms. Rhonda Reid
I grew up in Santa Barbara, CA, attended Santa Barbara City College and transferred to Azusa Pacific University, eventually earning my master's degree from California Baptist University. I was an avid swimmer and lifeguard so it is not surprising that I enjoy the water and SCUBA diving. I am rejuvenated by travel. I have traveled from the rich sites of Spain to the medieval Czech Republic, from emerald Ireland to the remote areas of Uganda, Africa. Someday, it's off to Australia/New Zealand and the Holy Land!! However, nothing takes the place of spending time with my beautiful family.
