Dr. CJ Rhoads is a profoundly accomplished educator on many levels, but her bringing her expertise regarding websites has literally saved this global phenomenon we call World Tai Chi & Qigong Day, by providing us with security to avoid debilitating hacks into our voluminous website WorldTaiChiDay.org which serves as the organizing hub of this massive global event. CJ also has tackled rebuilding our Events/Schools Directory which had connected over one-million of our viewers/readers to local Tai Chi and Qigong schools and organizers in their local areas worldwide. Without CJs expertise and vision this new directory would not have been possible. The global tai chi and qigong family cannot bow deeply enough to recognize the value of CJs vision of a clearer, healthier planet via the spread of Tai Chi & Qigong and mind-body practices worldwide and how it saved this site/event.

Dr. Rhoads is the founder and CEO of HPL Consortium, Inc. developing technology tools to help people connect toward health, prosperity, and leadership. She is also the managing director of its non-profit arm, HPL 501c3 Institute, which has 25 programs promoting health, prosperity, and/or leadership, some with international scope – many of which are Taiji-based.

She speaks and writes about entrepreneurship, business strategy, leadership development, information technology and the economics of healthcare and integrative health practices.  She’s also a Professor in the College of Business at Kutztown University, an avid researcher, and book author.

In 2009 she was honored as one of Pennsylvania's Best 50 Women in Business, in 2011 she received the Athena Leadership award, in 2013 was named one of Most Influential Women in Lehigh Valley Business, and in 2014 was named Top Researcher of the Year.
