 Rhonda Reardon  

Rhonda Reardon was elected to the City Council in November of 2010.  As someone who has lived in Mission Viejo for more than three decades, Rhonda's passion for this community and its people knows no bounds. Since joining the Council, she has been devoted to serving residents with respect and integrity – characteristics that drive her priorities of safety, quality of life and responsible spending.

Rhonda came to the Council with more than 25 years of business management experience. She spent most of those years in telecommunications, specializing in project management, product management and performance consulting.  During that time, Rhonda developed a reputation as a problem solver, coach and valued mentor who has produced many success stories.

In addition to serving on the Mission Viejo City Council, Rhonda was appointed in July 2014 as the Board of Directors Chair of the Foothill Eastern 241 Toll Road agency. She also serves as the 2nd Vice President of the Orange County Division, League of California Cities.

Along with being devoted to this community and her various roles, Rhonda has always been deeply committed to her faith, family and caring for others. Since 1979, she has been a member and leader at Saddleback Covenant Church in Mission Viejo. Because she was orphaned at an early age, Rhonda has always been compassionate about abused, neglected and abandoned children.  In the early '80s, she became involved in a faith-based organization, Camp Alandale, and later became a foster parent and volunteer working with abused children. In the late 1990s, Rhonda became a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) working with teenagers preparing them for emancipation from the Social Services system. 

Rhonda holds a Bachelor’s degree in History from Cal State Northridge and an MS in Technology Management from Pepperdine University.  She has also taken several classes in project management, process management, quality assurance and performance management.
