Rhonda Fulmer, Director of Ed. Initiatives
I was raised in Charleston, South Carolina attending the public schools of Charleston County and graduated with a B.S. degree in Business Administration - Accounting from the University of South Carolina. I have served on several boards including the Board of Directors of National Association of Women Business Owners, as President of the Board of Directors of a Homeowners Association and I was a visiting professor at Columbia College's celebration of Women's History Week. One of the most challenging and rewarding pleasures of my life is the privilege to work with The Women's Shelter in Columbia. Since 1996, I have been involved with the management of their 15 facilities helping the shelter by providing reasonable accountability which leads to stability for the residents. My husband, Michael, and I, live in the Shandon area and have a successful small business called Renaissance Designs, a custom cabinetry and furniture business. We have a daughter who works for Palmetto Health and son-in-law, a recent graduate of USC's nursing program, who works at Palmetto Baptist. It is a delight to have them nearby and their daughter, our granddaughter, who is 3 years old, is perfect joy!
