Ronda Snow has a Bachelor of Science in Medical Science (Physician Assistant) from Alderson-Broaddus College (1987) and 13 years clinical experience in psychiatry and cardiac catheterization lab. In the late 1990s she began part time study in the holistic health field. In 2011, Ronda was awarded a Ph.D in Natural Health from Clayton College of Natural Health for her dissertation Reiki and Relaxation: A Practical Look at Reiki as Stress Reduction In A Non-clinical Setting.
