Rhonda Shasteen

Chief Marketing Officer (retired) at Mary Kay Inc.

At Mary Kay for more than 25 years, and worked closely with Mary Kay Ash for 10.

Raised in Dallas, Texas. Married, 2 grown children.

At work, I enjoy helping women develop as leaders; creating solutions to complex problems;  learning new things. At home, I enjoy the cows, horses and garden; fresh country air and time with my husband; learning new things and discovering my authentic self.

With more time, I would: sew (again); exercise (more); run for political office.
