For Rita, those values focus on wellness: body, mind, and spirit. That philosophy infuses everything Rita does, including her key advisory role in the development of LifePilot and her involvement in various charitable boards.
Rita is a graduate of the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. To inspire people to live healthful lifestyles, Rita teamed up with executive chef Erin Holm to publish LifeDiet and in 2016 launched two additional books: The Power of Healthy Living and Delicious Meets Nutritious.
