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.
