Ronda Gates, M.S., R.Ph., is an adult development specialist and health promotion educator who develops and delivers programs and products to support lifestyle change. Ronda was a hospital pharmacist for seventeen years, then she traded in her white coat for a pair of athletic shoes, created a corporate fitness business, and never looked back. Combining that business experience with graduate education in nutrition, counseling, and life has generated honors from a range of professional organizations including the Association for Worksite Health Promotion and the Oregon Governor's Council for Health, Fitness and Sports.

She's presented more than five hundred keynote introductions and workshops, and has written or coauthored five books that reached best-seller status, including the most recent, Beauty, More Than Skin Deep.
