In 1993, she packed her bags, AGAIN, and transferred to Virginia Commonwealth University where she FINALLY graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in General Studies with a focus in Child Care Administration in 1997. While at VCU, she pledged Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. in the spring of 1995. She also gave birth to her first daughter while in school in 1996. After graduation, Ryshonna held several jobs ranging from customer service to assistant director at a franchise child care center. Ryshonna realized the need to have a “fall back” during transitions to new jobs, so in 1999, she went to school to become a Certified Massage Therapist. She completed the program in 2000 and worked in various country clubs and spas as a part-time therapist and has personal clients as well. In 2002, Ryshonna gave birth to her 2nd daughter. Not long after, Ryshonna and her fiancé ran off to Cancun to get married in 2002 and returned with a special souvenir. In 2003, her 3rd and FINAL daughter entered the world! Ryshonna has always had a compassion for working with children and taught 6th grade math at an inner-city school in Richmond for three years before discovering her entrepreneurial spirit. In 2003, she left the school system to co-own and operate a group home for pregnant/parenting teens in the foster care system. Since then, she has owned and operated a child care center and a consultation firm; helping other caring individuals open their own group homes and assisted living facilities. Ryshonna is currently the Program Director for an intensive in-home counseling firm and recently became a Certified Life Coach in February 2010. Ryshonna loves helping people realize their dreams and making them feel good about themselves and their future.
