29 Mar Member Spotlight: Rhonda Jorgensen
Rhonda Jorgensen, BPW/Hernando President-Elect
After graduating high school, college was not in the immediate cards for me but I learned a strong work ethic from my hard working parents. As a young wife and mother, I was fortunate that someone took a chance on me and when I was offered a job with a Chiropractor in 1989, I took every opportunity to soak in all I could. I learned all aspects of the office, got my x-ray license and worked my way up to becoming the office manager. After moving to Georgia in 1987, I came back to Hernando County in 1992 and continued my chiropractic career. For 25 years I managed and marketed chiropractic clinics. I was an active member of the Hernando County Chapter of PAHCOM, the Professional Association of Health Care Office Managers. I served in many positions on the board and earned the designation of a CCM, Certified Medical Manager.
While running the chiropractic office full time, I decided to get my real estate license. I was an active agent from 2006 to 2013 when I transitioned to a referral agent. In August 2020, I reactivated my license and am now a member of the Suncoast Team with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
In 2012, I began a new career with a CPA firm. I performed administrative work and assisted their Investment Advisors. I earned my 215 Insurance License, which allowed me to assist with client applications and collaborations. Currently I use this license to sell and assist clients with their Medicare Advantage Plans as an Independent Agent with Atlas Insurance.
All of this has led to my current position as the Office Manager for Suncoast CPA Group and Take Point Wealth Management. I have been a part of their team since May 2017.
I have served as a diplomat with the Hernando County Chamber of Commerce. I am an active member of the Hernando County Business and Professional Women and am currently serving as their President-Elect.
The career path I have taken has been a blessing personally as well as professionally. Although sometimes I feel like a jack of all trades, I am not the master of none… I would like to think that I create positive energy for those I work with and I seem to always be in a position to encourage and problem solve. Most of the time, I feel like that aspect is more important than my day to day job duties.
My proudest “success” has been my daughter Jennifer, who is now an amazing mommy of my beautiful grandchildren, a wonderful wife and a 2nd grade teacher at Challenger K-8 in Hernando County.
