Meet Rona Renner, RN

Hi, I'm Rona Renner. When I was 18, I became a registered nurse at Brooklyn College. I moved to California in 1967 and I live in Berkley with my wonderful husband, Mick. I've raised four children. They're all adults doing really good things in the world and I have two adorable grandsons. I've had a very diverse career as a nurse, working with old people, young people. I even lived in Africa for a few years. I'm very blessed. Well, about 20 years ago though, I found my passion – I became a pediatric nurse, an advisor as a temperament counselor and I love working with parents. I like to help them through those difficult challenges. There are times when we just don't know what our children need moment-to-moment and we need support for all of that work. I also started a radio show called, "Childhood Matters" and one called, "Nuestros Niños." I've been doing radio and TV for about 13 years – never expected to do that. You just don't know what life will bring your way.
