rhonda_leach_whnpRhonda Leach is a board-certified Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner who joined Southern Crescent Women’s Healthcare in July 2018. She specializes in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Originally from London, Kentucky, Rhonda studied at the University of Kentucky undergraduate nursing and proceeded to have a career in labor and delivery.

After the birth of her youngest son, Jaren, she worked part time in nursing and during that time was crowned Mrs. Kentucky International with her platform being domestic violence. She worked many years as an advocate for women who have been affected with domestic violence. She worked with local and regional domestic violence councils and has spoken all over the country on this passionate topic. She was a member of National Advisory Council on Violence Against Women for two terms under President George W. Bush.

In her goal to further work in the healthcare of women, she went to the University of Cincinnati and graduated with her Master’s in Women’s Health Nurse Practice in 2008. Along with her good friend, a gynecologist, they opened their own gynecology women’s health clinic in London, Kentucky. During that time she became proficient and certified in various forms of aesthetic procedures and opened her own Medspa which she continued to participate in until 2017.

Rhonda moved from Kentucky to Destin, Florida due to husband’s career and worked as a women’s health nurse practitioner for 2 years. Her husband, Rob, recently started working for the FAA here in Peachtree City, GA, where she and her family now reside. She is currently pursuing her Doctor of Nurse Practice (DNP) at the University of Cincinnati and will graduate with her doctorate in April 2019.

Rhonda enjoys watching old movies, traveling and paddle boarding, and looks forward to seeing all Georgia has to offer.
