LFD and Manager
Rondia Bailey, a native of Charleston, SC, has been in the funeral industry for several years. Rondia graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Savannah State University and a Master of Business Administration from AIU.
After graduation, Rondia found herself in a job that did not provide the satisfaction she had always dreamed of in a career. She soon found herself in funeral service and realized how much she enjoyed it. She enjoyed being able to assist families during such a difficult time in their lives and enjoyed making the wishes of their loved ones come true. As the lyrics state in the song recorded by Mahalia Jackson, “If I can help somebody as I pass along, then my living shall not be in vain.” That is something that Rondia lives by and found she was able to do by being in funeral service. She became a licensed Funeral Director in 2014 and has continued to learn and grow during her time in the industry.
Rondia is an active member of Charleston First Assembly where she is a Praise and Worship leader. In her free time, she enjoys traveling with her fiancé and spending time with her family.
