Principal and Senior Consultant
Rhonda Magee, MNM,
Senior Consultant and Principal
Rhonda began her career in the private sector, in accounting and financial management. With a keen interest--as early as high school--in the volunteer sectors, she eventually gravitated towards a specialization in Nonprofit Management. Awareness that her favorite part of her early accounting career was managing and leading people allowed a vocational sweet spot to emerge: working in organizational development spheres within the Social Sector. Finding, articulating and managing the unique connections of social realities, community needs and the disciplines of resource development and management, personal growth, leadership development and strategic wisdom—this is where Rhonda works so that effort and Impact come together.
Work experience includes managing teams in administration, finance and human resources, at Adolph Coors, American Development, and Bede Scientific (now Bruker Corp). She led similar departments for mid-sized nonprofits in various sub-sectors, including child abuse prevention, women's global empowerment and peer-driven EAP organizations.
Rhonda has been working with organizations for the past 10 years through her consulting practice and interim staff leadership positions. This work has included an array of services in sub-sectors that include international development, youth development, disability services, and in elder services.
All of this powerful learning and work has solidified a vision of a more just and equitable world, where those who are a traditionally underserved, systemically under-respected and/or unseen can become visible, respected and can thrive in new and glorious ways. Mission and operational clarity, along with leadership and team strength and balance allows all of that to flourish. Rhonda has recently developed and synthesized a substantial tool box of strategies, which are now being uniquely delivered through new frameworks and programs here at Garden Hill and Full Circle Enneagram.

Rhonda lives and works in Lawrence, KS, married to Larry Jenks; together they thrive under the wide, expansive skies. While her work has taken her across the globe, she especially enjoys working with clients and colleagues in Denver, CO and Portland OR, where she previously lived and worked. When not at work she is walking (and loves discovering hiking opportunities, even in Kansas!), reading, making with fibers and textiles, or gardening.
