Dr. Rhone is a native New Yorker, but came to Virginia to complete her medical training and has been in the state ever since. During her pediatric residency, she was inspired by the strength and resiliency displayed by both patients and families in their journey with chronic disease. She became motivated to be a part of the team to take care of children with hypertension and kidney disease.

When she is not seeing patients, Dr. Rhone is a highly active faculty member at Eastern Virginia Medical School. She is passionate about education, which includes teaching patients and their families about ways to stay healthy.
