National speaker and author of Finding Hope for Your Journey through Breast Cancer, Yvonne Ortega will interview Rhonda M. Smith. Rhonda is a breast cancer survivor and president and founder of Rhegal Consulting. With more than 20 years of experience that includes sales and marketing management and learning and development consulting, Rhonda has parlayed her professional and personal experience into a unique skill set that includes marketing/PR, community outreach and recruitment and relationship-building targeting a diverse population of breast cancer survivors. Rhonda recently launched an online resource for breast cancer survivors, www.breastcancerpartner.com, that focuses on breast cancer recovery through health and wellness. The Web site focuses on providing tools, resources and information to help breast cancer survivors recover, restore and re-energize themselves after treatment. Rhonda focuses on more than the medical aspect of recovery. She offers a more holistic approach to breast cancer recovery, that is integrating the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of healing. Rhonda appeared in the October 2010 issue of More magazine as the first runner-up in the magazine's contest on "Why This is the Most Fabulous Time in My Life." She wrote an essay on her breast cancer journey and how she has emerged from that experience with a new identity and sense of purpose. In 2006, she was named one of South Florida's "25 Most Prominent and Influential African-American Women" by Success South Florida Magazine.
