A lifelong Methodist, RaMona was born in Oklahoma and got to Texas as quickly as she could at the age of three! She has remained a Texan and attended school in Houston and Sealy where she graduated high school. Prior to moving to Sealy with her parents, RaMona attended church and was active in all things youth at Bellaire United Methodist church and continued to participate in the youth group at Sealy United Methodist.
After high school, RaMona attended Blinn Junior College, Wharton County Junior College and finally received her Bachelors in Secondary Education at Prairie View A & M University and became a math teacher in Fort Bend ISD. She also taught in Alief ISD and continued her career as an educator becoming an instructional specialist and an administrator. RaMona spent five years in Lamar CISD as an Assistant Principal and then went on to train educators from across the state while working as an Education Specialist at Region 4 Education Service Center. Finally, after 17 years out of the classroom, RaMona went back to work with students teaching 8th and 9th graders Algebra and Geometry.
As an adult, RaMona continued attending and actively participating in the churches she attended. At Christ United Methodist church in Sugar Land, Texas, she was part of the hand bell choir and church choir. Additionally, she was a Sunday School teacher and a Stephen Minister. After she and her husband Chris moved to Fulshear, they transferred their membership to Faith United Methodist Church where RaMona continued as a choir member, Stephen Minister and Sunday School teacher.
In 2014, RaMona was invited to attend the Walk to Emmaus retreat and during this walk was when she realized her call to ministry. From that point, she took classes and continued to discern the best way to serve God in ministry. In the summer of 2020, RaMona retired from her career in public education and received her first appointment as a Licensed Local Pastor at Faith United Methodist Church.
