Ronda Joy Hobbs graduated from BYU-Idaho in July 2015, where she earned the distinguished Gordon B. Hinckley Communicator award. She began her career in digital platforms as an intern during her last semester at BYU-Idaho.
Ronda is an east Idaho native who calls Pocatello her old stomping grounds but Idaho Falls home. Ronda spent the better part of 25 years in the beauty industry as owner and operator of a hair salon. Her love for people and business along with her strong desire to reach for the stars landed her back in school to pursue a college degree in communication with an emphasis in public relations.
Ronda loves running, horseback riding, hiking, camping, and working in her yard. She has successfully completed two marathons and a number of half-marathons and 10ks – only to help her keep up with a husband, six kids and a handful of grandkids who are her greatest pleasure.
