Investment Perspectives: Describe what you do at Trust Company of Oklahoma.
Rhonda Kerr: I process all incoming oil and gas revenue for over 250 accounts.
IP: What is your favorite part of this job?
RK: I’ve been in the O&G business for 37 years. It’s a roller coaster ride. Anyone who has been in this business knows you enjoy the good times (higher oil prices), and you are thankful you have a job during the bad times (lower prices). I enjoy the people I’ve meet over the years. Raylene Rogers and Anissa DeMoss have been co-workers of mine for the past 20 years. They’ve become part of my family. It’s a huge plus to make such good friends as well as co-workers.
IP: What do you like to do when you are not working?
RK: I spend time with my family. I also love to travel and sink my feet into the sand. I love the ocean!
IP: How would your friends and family describe you?
RK: My friend Mina Faye said: “Rhonda is caring, loving and giving. She is funny and loves her family.” I would hope my family would say the same.
IP: What might someone be surprised to know about you?
RK: My husband and I own a pawn shop in Owasso. Also, each year, I take a group of special needs adults to Stillwater to participate in the Special Olympics Oklahoma. This will be my 11th year as an organizer.
IP: How did you get involved with the event?
RK: My daughter, Brooke, has cerebral palsy. She has participated in the olympic games with the Owasso group since she was little. When she turned 18, I started volunteering with the group. At first, I organized a group of four special needs adults. Over the years, the group has grown and now I take 14 of them. There’s a lot of paperwork and responsibility involved with taking special needs people to such a major event, but it’s also very rewarding. All of my problems go away when I walk into that football stadium and I see thousands of kids and adults from across the state playing and having a good time.
IP: You have your hands full!
RK: Yes. Brooke is an independent adult. She works at a hospital in Owasso. But my husband and I also raise our two grandkids, Marshall and Estella, ages 7 and 4. They’re a blessing and we have so much fun together. Marshall says he wants to be a scientist when he grows up. Estella wants to be a mermaid.
