Ronada Frazier


A description of Ronada is simplistic yet complex.  Being born in the south and transplanted to northern VA, gives an edge to her sweet and modern personality.  A helper by nature, she can routinely be found giving advice or lending a hand.  She also spends a lot of time with her family, loves beaches and stylish shoes (what girl doesn’t). She has spent much of her career in a management role and is currently engulfed in the MBA program which she has found to cement her love of the business world.
