Rhonda completed cosmetology training at Phillips Community College in 1997. After renting booth space in Helena for two years, her hopes came true when she opened the doors of Salon 2000 in May 2000.

Salon 2000 is a professional service barber/beauty salon dedicated to providing consistent service and customer satisfaction. In spring 2003, Rhonda enrolled in the IDA program to save for business renovations and expansion. She began using her funds in 2005 to purchase new equipment, furniture and beauty supplies. Since program enrollment, Rhonda has moved to a more convenient location, added two stylists and offers extended hours. Considering she is a single mother with two children, owning her own business affords her the income and freedom to take care of her family.
