Rhonda Banker, Licensed Unity Teacher

Rhonda first came to Unity of Citrus in February of 2014, and she knew from the moment she walked through the door she had found her spiritual home.
Her first two classes were with our very own LUT's Mary Magee-Allen, and Annie Bumgarner which ignited a flame that could not be contained.
To complete the required Spiritual Education and Enrichment classes, (25 classes, 250 hours), Rhonda attended classes at Unity Centers and churches throughout Florida, and attended four intensive weeks at Unity Village in Lee's Summit, Missouri.  Her journey continues with two full weeks completed of, three required at Unity Village, for the Leadership Program. Rhonda's passion for the water drove her to become U.S.C.G. Captain doing manatee tours in Citrus County.  She is also a certified scuba instructor.

Rhonda looks forward to sharing, receiving, learning, and growing together as ONE in our Spiritual Unity Community.
