Her late mother, a significant mentor, instilled in her the belief that she could overcome challenges and make a positive impact. Rhonda aspires to inspire young minority women to consider tech careers.

In the world of mortgage technology, Rhonda, associated with PerformLine, focuses on navigating regulatory scrutiny and advancing compliance. She envisions a 100% paperless process from origination through closing, contributing to a sustainable environment for future generations.
