Ronda Snow has a Bachelor of Science in Medical Science (Physician Assistant) with 13 years clinical experience in psychiatry and cardiac cath lab. In the late 1990s she began part time study in the holistic health, completing a Ph.D in Natural Health in 2011 from Clayton College of Natural Health (closed) for her dissertation Reiki and Relaxation: A Practical Look at Reiki as Stress Reduction In A Non-clinical Setting.
Since 2003, Ronda has worked as an independent artist, self-published author and natural health consultant offering medication-free stress reduction strategies including Tarot readings for advice, insight and personal enrichment, Reiki sessions , individual meditation tutorials, and small group workshops.

She is a retired Yang style Tai Chi instructor, ordained U.L.C. preceptor, Etsy shop owner, mala maker, amateur poet, and aspiring writer with self-published works currently available.
