Rita was born & raised in San Diego, California. Her parents were born in the Middle East and she’s first generation in the United States. She’s the only child and claims she is not spoiled 😉 Her English/German Step-Father raised her with her Mom since she was a child and taught her a lot about serving others through his military service and service as a police officer. She has always had a passion to help others. She decided to follow her Father’s footsteps and enlist in the Air Force Reserves after high school.
She met her husband Dr. James LeFever in Las Vegas. They have 2 amazing kids together, Liam and Mila who keep them on their toes!
In 2015, Rita started not feeling well and her health started declining quickly. She was diagnosed with Stage III Breast Cancer later that year at the age of 34. With 2 small children, Rita and Dr. LeFever started their journey fighting breast cancer. In 2016, she underwent 2 surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation along with various holistic/integrative approaches to getting her health back to an optimal state.
To date, Rita is currently in remission and is thriving! “What doesn’t kill you CAN make you stronger.” Because of her journey at a young age, she decided to shift her energy/focus into helping the practice grow into a more comprehensive/integrative wellness center to help others, especially as it relates to chronic disease such as cancer.
Rita has continued her training/education as it relates to Health & Wellness. In 2017, she educated herself in energy work and sound therapy. She is currently an Investigating Health Practitioner (IHP) and is helping others through their spiritual, mental, physical, and emotional struggles in life. She also has 2 Associates Degrees and an extensive list of certifications and/or licenses.
Rita’s passion and goals are to help educate people to prevent degenerative diseases through their own health journey!
What Health means to Rita: Having the right balance between the spiritual, mental, physical and emotional connections. When one is compromised, it will impair the others state and well-being. Love and time for God, relaxation, body healing, and self love are key components to being balanced and having them all work synergistically.
Through work/life balance, Rita enjoys spending time with her family, loves the lake and jet skiing/boating, networking/socializing, and traveling.
