About Rhonda Thomas

Rhonda Thomas - Founder of Rhon'sWay

Chicago-based Rhonda Thomas began her journey as a motivational health strategist and licensed health coach in 2012 after realizing that health affects everything and everything affects health. In response to that revelation, she created The Healthy Living Plan through her Rhon’sWay organization, which she founded in 2002, to support women who are trying to balance the second half of their lives.

Having served the wellness community for more than a decade, Rhonda passionately brings awareness to what it takes to live a healthier life. She strives to connect the public to new ways of thinking and living. With no one-size-fits-all answer, Rhonda knows that the mental, the physical, and the emotional all play a supporting role in everyone’s life. She authored the book, ‘Soul Combining for a Slimmer Healthier You’. She documents her journey in her book. For over 20 years she lived and struggled with the same weight gain sabotaging issues until she recognized within herself her power.

She is also a speaker, educator, and wellness consultant who has dedicated her life to educating, enlightening, and empowering the mature woman to increase her quality of life and getting to her “happy”. Rhonda routinely travels across the United States facilitating workshops and mini conferences. She has spoken in front of numerous organizations including “Making It Count”, a program that encouraged high school students to prepare for college and on the value of education.

Whether it’s one-on-one coaching, small group intensives or keynote speaking, Rhonda is capable of leaving her audiences wanting more. With her energetic and motivating style, she has what it takes to move an audience in a positive, engaging, and thought-provoking way towards balance and improving their lives.

She was also featured twice in a national publication brochure for Mary Kay Cosmetics.

Rhonda holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work and a Master of Arts degree in Inner City Studies from Northeastern Illinois University. She is also a graduate of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
