Hi! My name is Ronda and I live in southeastern Wisconsin.  I have 2 adult children; Savanah is 27 and was diagnosed with UC at 20 years old and my son, Paul is 23.  I am also an Ama(Grandma) to Isaac who is 2 ½ and is the love of my life! (don’t tell my hubs)  We have a Bearded Dragon named Malcolm who is sweet except when he is being judgemental.

How did you learn about Girls With Guts?

I found out about GWG right before the 2nd retreat. (Texas retreat) Before that I had never met(that I know of) other people with IBD and definitely did not know anyone that had an ostomy or J pouch.(again, that I know of)(since then I have had a temporary ostomy and currently an S pouch)

Why did you decide to volunteer with Girls With Guts?

I wanted to help out with GWG in some fashion to be able to ‘give back’ to this group and all the ways that this group has helped me.

When you are not volunteering with Girls With Guts what do you do with your time?

I love spending time with my grandson, hiking, biking(recumbent trike), crocheting, loom knitting, camping and gardening!
