Rodney helped over 130 High School students and 60 Middle School students gain a sense of direction, accountability, and structure. Rodney founded Conditioned Minds in 2007; an innovative and cutting-edge, character development company focused on behavior modeling, centered around focus skills, achievement, data assessments, and redirection towards positive outcomes.
