Rhea was planning to become a golf pro in her early years. While at Penn State, she had a Near-Death Experience that completely turned around her life. She studied everything she could that came even close to her experience and was accepted to work with J.B. and Louisa Rhine at the Duke Lab. She enjoyed many hours discussing the field with them and their colleagues. Carl Jung's works also made a big impact on her life.
She received her Master's in Library Science and while a Librarian for the East Meadow Public Library in New York, she worked as Editor for several journals in the field. Rhea is in Who's Who in the World, Who's Who in America, Who's Who of American Women, and Who's Who in Science and Engineering. She mentored numerous people during her vibrant career and at the time of her death was Editor-in-Chief of the JASPR, and Founder and President of the Exceptional Human Experience Network. Her vita spans thirteen pages. A tributes' page to Rhea has been started at the EHE Network website, www.ehe.org.
