She graduated from The School of Theology at the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee, and was ordained in 2007. She is married to Max and they have two amazing grown sons and the very best daughters-in-law and five adorable grandchildren. Bentley, their young English Springer Spaniel and Paddy Bear, their new Cockapoo puppy, compete with the grands for their love and attention! Prior to ordination Ronnie worked part-time for a local optometrist and was involved in several diocesan ministries such as Cursillo and Happening. She served as the Interim Summer Camp Director of Camp Weed Summer Camp of 2003 and as the Lay Director for Breakout!, a retreat ministry for older elementary children for several years (yes, she lost count). It is easy to see how much she loves children and youth (and adults as well!). Ronnie currently serves on the Board of Examining Chaplains and is a mentor for the Diaconal Formation and Training in the Diocese of Florida.
