This is a volunteer position that Janet loves to focus any spare time on. Janet has a passion for making the world a better place for those with disabilities and the ERG allows Janet to follow her passion at Siemens. The ERG’s mission is to make Siemens a more inclusive workplace, providing accommodations to employees with different abilities to allow them to be successful in their positions, and promoting awareness through community involvement activities such as the Special Olympics of GA. She is so honored and proud to add CFO for the Three Basketeers to her resume.

Rhonda Brock

Rhonda has been on the Three Basketeers Board since its inception. Being the Godmother of one of the original Basketeers (Basketeer Brett) allowed her a front row seat to the need of having meaningful employment to the adults with special needs. An Atlanta native, she graduated from Georgia State University where she met her husband of 36 years, Dick Brock. Rhonda and Dick established their own Accounting practice that provides consultation and tax return preparation to small businesses and the people that own them since 1989.

The experience in working with small businesses allows her unique insight in serving Three Basketeers. As a mother to five adult children, Rhonda understands the importance for all adults to have an opportunity for meaningful work and believes that Three Basketeers can provide that opportunity.

Regina Brock, Board Secretary

Regina graduated from Georgia State University in 2014 with a Business degree in Marketing. Since then she has spent the majority of my career with Whirlpool Corporation, working across multiple functions of the business including Sales, Product Training, Consumer Services and Retail Merchandising. With her experience and passion for the customer, she contributes fresh ideas, merchandising strategies and offer support to Three Basketeers.

On the personal side, she is one of those crazy humans who likes to run and tries to get in a couple miles each day to clear her head.  She recently finished the Boston Marathon!  She is excited for the opportunity to serve Three Basketeers as a member of the board, and believes the experience is far more rewarding than the work she contributes.
