A Denver native who was raised in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, Rhonda wanted to live someplace completely new and different after she graduated from college. She ended up in New England, where she spent six years with Coopers and Lybrand. She then served in financial management positions at two large companies before being named COO of a distribution firm. After six years with that firm, she made the decision to move back home to Denver in 2002.
"The key to success for any company is to live and breathe its mission, vision and values. That is what I love most about working at Phipps… I get to work in a place where we do that every single day. I am so proud of what our employees accomplish for the company and for the communities we work in."
Rhonda lives in Parker with her significant other, has two stepchildren, and spends as much time as she can with her two young nephews, Dylan and Colin.
