I took action to reflect my life’s purpose. Later, UR Aware was created with the intention to help transform lives the way I changed mine.

One of the things I’m always asked is, “How did you get here?”

I remember the day I thought to myself, “Is there something more for me to do?” At the time I was working as an attorney at one of Wisconsin’s largest law firms. As I peered out my office window, on the 17th floor overlooking downtown Milwaukee, I knew in my heart that although I was successful, there was something more that I was created to do.

In that moment I decided to embark on a journey of self-exploration to identify the life I truly desired. My journey led me to the realization that I had to let go of some old ways of thinking and say yes to the revelation that I could create a life aligned with my gifts and live a life authentically and unapologetically tailored to me.

My journey revealed that I am purposed to assist people with identifying what their dreams are and provide practical tools to pursue and achieve them.

Equipped with my passion to empower, and my expansive, professional experiences as an attorney, facilitator, non-profit leader, advocate and public servant, I help people transform their lives through my company UR Aware.

I use all of my gifts and talents to maximize my impact in the world to inspire people—like you—to create the life they truly desire.

A little bit more about me…

I travel…a lot.

I’m an advocate.

I love the arts.

I’m a visionary.

To travel is to evolve. I’ve traveled across the United States, Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, France, and Germany. I studied abroad in Egypt and climbed Mount Sinai.

I’m a huge believer in equal opportunity and public safety. I promoted domestic violence prevention, encouraged civic engagement, equality, education, and empowerment.

It strengthens the mind and body. I’ve played the viola around the world and my poem was featured on NPR. I even took dance classes from Janet Jackson’s choreographers!

When I look beyond the water’s horizon, I think to myself, “You could be anywhere in the world.” In my work, I empower clients to look beyond their live’s horizons to discover infinite possibilities.

"Over the years I’ve facilitated numerous trainings with Rhonda for male and female groups of college student-athletes, coaches and administrators. As a result, I’ve witnessed first-hand her ability to connect with —and inspire— people, no matter the topic or setting. I’d also like to add that she’s an all around pleasure to work with and a thoughtful, meticulous planner who knows her stuff."

"I am the trainer/facilitator that I am because I was blessed to have learned from Rhonda Ware sooo many years ago. People ask me how I learned to be so good, and I share with them the story of you. How you approached presenting and how you were able to draw people into you and the conversation using your intellect, your wit, and your creativity especially when there was resistance. I am so thankful to Rhonda because I am where I never thought I would be because of her imprint on my life."

Lisa M.
Assistant Director of Training, The Center for the Study of Sport in Society, MA

"I have witnessed Rhonda Ware present for college athletes and administrators in Florida and a leadership summit in Chicago. Rhonda makes an immediate connection with audiences. Her positive mindset and deliberate insertions of personal stories and disclosures of life's lessons inspired and empowered participants to acknowledge their own inner strength and to think and feel beyond themselves in the service of others. Rhonda helped the participants see, through their own eyes, that the power to make real change lies within each one of them."

Alan H.
Director of the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) Leadership Institute, Center for Violence Prevention, University of Northern Iowa

"I worked with Rhonda in 2016 as a facilitator, as we educated and trained George Westinghouse High School students on violence prevention using the Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP) model.

Rhonda was especially knowledgeable and personal and brought a calming and neutral perspective on issues that were historically considered to be "women issues". Rhonda showed patience and listened attentively as each student shared their own experience, and triumphs/struggles regarding the impact violence have played in their lives. In each student group, Rhonda showed her ability to adapt to the demographic and communicate in a way that the students could understand and feel comfortable engaging and disclosing very personal stories.

It is important to reintegrate Rhonda’s calming spirit; it is not easy discussing some of these tough subjects that we all go through, and it takes someone who Is well-versed in these areas, along with someone who can manage different personalities, have a neutral and unbiased approach, and the patience the allow each group to have its own culture… and be okay with that; Rhonda did that, and I appreciate her work."
