About Project She™ 

Far too often we women prioritize our jobs, families, and activities ahead of our own well-being; however, if we don’t first invest in ourselves, we cannot be of true value to anyone else.  Project She™ is purposed to support and encourage every woman to make herself a priority.  We provide resources and information to guide her towards maintaining balance through health, wellness and wholeness in every aspect of her life. 

The major initiative of Project She™ is The SheTreat™ -  a place  and space where she can step away from the everyday grind to enjoy an uplifting, encouraging and positive experience to REFLECT, REFOCUS and RENEW herself towards becoming a better woman, first for herself, and then her family and her community. Mix in a touch of fun,  fellowship, and networking...it's an experience not to be missed!

The latest phase of Project She was launched in 2018!   The SheTreat Miniseries™ is designed to be your accountability partner throughout your journey. 

To help you remain focused. 

To keep you honest. 
To hold you to your commitments.

She is me

Rhonda Smith Hicks is a wife, mother of two, IT professional, entrepreneur and cancer survivor.  She is originally from New Jersey, however, has called North Carolina home for the past 25 years.  Rhonda holds a degree in Business Administration Management from Meredith College.  Her corporate career has been in the fields of telecommunications and IT, primarily focusing on project, account, and personnel management.  In November, 2009, Rhonda launched her first entrepreneurial venture – Amazing Grace Event Management.  Over the past several years,  she has had the opportunity to plan and manage events spanning from milestone celebrations and weddings to small business and large corporate tradeshows on both a national and international scale. 

Rhonda is an active member of her community.  She is the president of the Raleigh-Durham Chapter for the National Association for Professional Women (NAPW), which is the largest women’s networking organization in the country, with over 600,000 members nationwide. She is also a contributing columnist for New Focus Daily magazine, a women’s lifestyle magazine, which provides go-to guide for strategies about health and wellness, cancer survivorship, money, career, relationships, inspiration and more.

She is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, whose main thrusts are Sisterhood, Scholarship and Service.  Rhonda is also a Sunday school teacher and member of the Youth Ministry Leadership Team at her church.  When Rhonda is not busy taking her daughter to Girl Scouts or cheering on her son at his basketball games, she loves to travel and spend time with her family.  She enjoys hosting gatherings at her home to bring family and friends together for food, fun and fellowship!

Her latest venture, Project She™, is her personal passion.  Because she lives the life of a busy wife, mommy and business woman, Rhonda understands the challenges and stressors that can be overwhelming on a daily basis.  This project was born out of those experiences and it is her hope this forum will serve as a place for women to support one another in the name of encouragement and positivity through the powerful bond of womanhood.
