Hi. I am Rhoda. My close friends call me Ody, derived from the 2 letters of my name – O and D. I am a registered pharmacist and a real estate broker by profession. I used to be a full time mom to my only son, Josh, until I decided to somehow practice my profession, not as a pharmacist but as a real estate broker.Now, I’m back to becoming the ultimate homeschool mom to my child.
I am married to an Industrial Engineer from Davao City, who spent 9 years of his life working as a Medical Representative of Pfizer until he realized that he has greater potential as a real estate broker. Now, he is managing our real estate office in Davao City.
I am a certified probinsyana by blood and by birth. When I am asked about my origins, I have to rant over the places I have been and my parents’ bloodline.
My dad is a full blooded igorot (FBI) whose parents came all the way from Sagada (father) and Sabangan (mother), both are towns in Mountain Province. But my grandparents raised their children in Conner, Apayao (Kalinga-Apayao that time).
My mom is an Ilokana. Her dad is from Batac, Ilocos Norte while her mom is from Abra, Mountain Province.
Enough about my parents..:) According to them, I was made in Villasis, Pangasinan and was born in Boguibog, Salcedo, Ilocos Sur. But I grew up in Tabuk, Kalinga. How? My dad was transferred from Ilocos Sur to Kalinga. He is a pastor, by the way.:) I finished my college degree in Saint Louis University, Baguio City.
I spent my childhood days in Barangay Casigayan, Tabuk.
I am a proud probinsyana and I never regretted growing up as one. With all the fresh air, fresh harvests and simple lifestyle, I can really say that I had a happy childhood and a contented family.
Even now that I am living in a city with my own family, we have kept the provincial set up at home. I have my own vegetable garden. How i wish I could also have an animal farm. 🙂
