Darla Rhodes

Digital Strategist

W/ us since August 2015
Pronouns: She/her

Professional Path

Darla came to our team by way of a career shift, joining Wheelhouse DMG after almost 15 years of employment with the Federal Reserve Bank. Darla’s experience at the nation’s bank included overseeing operations, projects, and third-party relationships in Washington, Oregon, and Alaska. She managed a budget of almost $3M, a staff of over 120, and key customer relationships with financial institutions and every type of auditor you can imagine, including the Board of Governors and the Treasury.

Personal Passions

On the side, Darla pursued interests in writing and web-design, eventually leaving the Fed to focus on building new skills while raising two young boys. Darla found a great job match in Wheelhouse.

“Wheelhouse was able to see the value in my experience, and has displayed great flexibility and support in adapting my skills to the company’s needs.”  

Darla also loves the charitable focus of the company, having led several large-scale volunteer projects in her spare time, including the fundraising for the installation of a new playground at her neighborhood elementary school. In her “free” time, Darla enjoys exploring with her boys and has an inexhaustible list of things to try and places to visit. She’s raced on a sailing team, kissed the Blarney Stone (hindsight: eww), white water rafted in Malaysia, was once almost hit by Prince Charles’ motorcade, tasted ant butts in Australia (loaded with vitamin C & surprisingly tasty!), and still loves to ride ATVs on the beaches of San Felipe, Mexico.
