Born in New York City, Rhona Melsky is a long-time journalist and writer/editor whose family moved to Scottsdale when she was a young teen. After high school she moved back to New York City to attend college and then began a career there as a journalist working for various magazines and community newspapers. She and her husband, fellow WHRR board member Roger Cardillo, moved to Arizona in 2003 and soon after began their affiliation with Wildhorse Ranch Rescue. Originally sent to the rescue to write a freelance story, Rhona’s life was changed by the incredible stories of the organization and its equine residents.
