Rhonda Williams has had the opportunity to work in many types of schools and districts over many years. It is her pleasure and honor to teach others about the passion she has for the profession of counseling.

She is currently the Executive Director of the Colorado School Counselor Association. At the national level Dr. Williams has served as ASCA Ethics chair, and Ethics Co-Chair for 7 years. Rhonda has been fortunate enough to receive the Colorado Middle School Counselor of the Year award, and the American School Counselor Association Middle School Counselor of the year and most recently the American School Counselor Association Counselor Educator of the Year.
