Welcome to My Personal Page
Rhonda grew up on a farm in the south-central area of rural Manitoba, near the small town of Rathwell. Rhonda is an owner and President of Crocus Country Gravel, located east of Brandon. As the President and the Marketing Director of this premier pit in Manitoba, she works to enhance and improve infrastructure and roads in the province.
Rhonda also has a passion for the agriculture industry in which she pursued her education, holding a diploma in Agricultural Technology and a degree in Agri-Business. She has worked in this industry for over 20 years, spending much of that time in farm management, commodity marketing and risk management planning.
She continues to support agriculture and rural Manitoba by working for the provincial government Department of Agriculture serving as the Manager of the Ag Adaptation section.
Outside of work, Rhonda enjoys spending time with her family and friends, loves to bike ride, ski and an array of other outdoor activities.
Why did you choose to participate in this event?
I chose to participate because I feel passionate about STARS air ambulance and want to ensure that all rural Manitobans are aware of the service.
Why do you support STARS?
I support STARS to help ensure that this crucial emergency service continues to be available to rural Manitoba residents. As the manager of the Ag Adaptation Section in the Industry Advancement Division of the Manitoba department of Agriculture and as the owner and President of Crocus Country Gravel, an aggregate pit located just outside of Brandon Manitoba, I am intimately involved in both the Agriculture and Construction industries in Manitoba.
Both of these industries predominantly operate in rural areas and are often not situated near emergency services. Since, both farmers and gravel processors are in the business of working with heavy equipment on a daily basis, this emergency service is crucial to saving lives in the event of an accident. Also, my brother was involved in a farm accident when I was a teenager and he came very close to not surviving, therefore the benefit of the STARS air ambulance service hits me very close to home.
What will be your indispensable piece of survival gear or good luck charm?
I have a citrine sun pendant that brings me warm positive energy that I will wear for good luck!
